There is definitely no need for sunglasses across central North Carolina Tuesday.  Cloudy skies will continue through the day with areas of fog at times.  

A warm front slowly moving through the state will cause a wide range in temperatures across the region.  At times, there could be an at least 20 degree difference from the northwest side of the Triangle to the Sandhills.  High temperatures from the 50s north of the Triangle to the low 70s near Fayetteville should come at the end of the day.

Tuesday forecast

Spotty light showers along with patchy drizzle is possible during the day Tuesday.  However, the highest chance to see measurable rain will come between 7 and 10pm as a cold front passes through the area.

Some of the showers along the front Tuesday evening could produce gusty winds and even a few rumbles of thunder.

All of the rain should end by around 11pm or midnight.  We will then see clearing through the early morning hours.

Look for plenty of sun all day Wednesday.  It will be a bit breezy at times with highs near 60.

Thursday may have some of the best weather of the week for Valentine's Day.  With mostly sunny conditions, highs sould warm to at least the mid 60s.

Rain chances will return to the forecast for the end of the week and the weekend.  That could just be the start of a wet weather pattern lasting through much of next week.
