Hitting the 70s: Temperatures to be above average all week

We're in for a big change from last week's Polar Vortex with temperatures reaching the mid-70s this week.

High pressure building this week will allow warm air from the Gulf of Mexico to move north, giving us April-like high temperatures in the low to mid-70s.

Big Weather said temperatures will be above average all week at RDU.

Rain chances look low on Thursday and Friday, but even with the warm air, the clouds limit the sunshine.

Temperatures do drop again by next weekend to near 50 degrees.
