Raleigh, N.C. — A high-pressure system moved into central North Carolina overnight Sunday, ushering in cooler, drier air after Saturday's steady soaking.
Most of the heavy rain that dumped on counties south of the Triangle in the early morning hours had cleared the area by Sunday morning, and by Sunday night, a dry air mass will take over.
Monday will be mostly sunny and less humid with temperatures in the low 70s.
"Tomorrow looks like a really nice start to the week," said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss. "We'll have low humidity, a low around 54 and a high around 73 with lots of sunshine. It will be a bright day on Tuesday as well."
Temperatures are expected to shoot up again Tuesday through Saturday, with highs in the 80s.
"Fall's first full week looks to be a beautiful one," WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
