Chilly week ahead after damp Monday

Posted March 18, 2013

— After Saturday's warm weather in which highs in the mid-70s, Monday was expected to be cooler with a drizzle of rain throughout the day in some areas.

Highs Monday were forecast to be in the low to mid-50s for central North Carolina.

The rain likely won't amount to much, but a band of showers moving into the area early Tuesday could bring brief heavy showers and thunderstorms.

Tuesday's expected to be warmer, with highs in the upper 60s, but it will also be windy, with gusts up to 25-30 mph at times.

Highs for the rest of the week will drop, beginning Wednesday with temperatures ranging in the 50s.

"When you take a look at this week, it's certainly going to be a lot colder than it is warmer," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.
