The overnight weather forecast for the Triangle night may kick Wednesday’s low-temperature record, set in 1903, into the waste heap as clear skies and northwest wind push readings into the upper teens.
The existing record for the date is 21 degrees at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.
The National Weather Service forecast for the Raleigh area Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning calls for about 19 degrees. The Wednesday high is predicted to be in the mid-40s.
In other parts of the Triangle, Wednesday morning should see thermometers reading about 19 degrees in Durham, 18 in Orange County, and 17 in Chatham and Johnston counties.
Thursday morning is not supposed to be as cold, with a low of 27 predicted across the region.
