People woke up this morning to temperatures about as warm as it was going to get, with the National Weather Service forecasting a drop during the day toward a below-freezing morning on Tuesday.
The forecasters also said there is a chance of freezing rain north and east of Raleigh before rain tapers off toward sunset or in the evening, but they also said roads are warm enough to keep ice from forming there.
As always, they are warning for drivers was to be careful on bridges and overpasses because cold air surrounding elevated surfaces might lead to some icing.
What will make the difference is how fast cold air from the north pushes into the region and how fast rain moves out, the weather service said.
After a low around 30 degrees overnight Monday, Tuesday is supposed to have a high temperature in the mid-40s and partly sunny skies.
