Big Temperature Contrast!

Here's something you don't see every day....

These are temperature maps I grabbed shortly after 3am this morning. It doesn't take much to find the warm front this morning with temperatures in the 60s south and east of Raleigh and the 30s in the Triangle! The above maps don't even show all the details. At 3am this morning, it was in the 39 at RDU Airport, the 44 at News 14 Carolina on the north side of downtown Raleigh and 60 in Fuquay-Varina just south of Raleigh.
Here's where the forecast becomes tricky.... will the warm air that just to the south of Raleigh move south through the Triangle. If it does, morning temperatures could easily warm into the 60s. If the warm stays put, the Triangle may struggle to even warm to the 40s!
Of course, temperatures aren't the only story this morning with rain falling since Tuesday night. I'm still ironing out all the details for our latest forecast update. We'll have that for you through the day on News 14 Carolina with Weather Ones. More blog updates as time is available....
