Raleigh, N.C. — Unseasonable cold continues through the week, with high temperatures that won't get out of the 50s until at least next weekend, said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.
The rain that soaked Sunday moved out Monday, but wind gusting as high as 35 mph will make it feel even colder than the number on the thermometer.
Light snow fell Monday morning in Boone, and the National Weather Service had nine counties in the western part of the state under a winter storm warning through Tuesday.
Only spotty showers are forecast for the Triangle Monday and Tuesday, and after that skies will clear. But the cold sticks around with the chance to dip below freezing each night of this week.
