Two of Raleigh's outdoor pools also will close on Sunday. They are Biltmore Pool, 701 Crown Crossing Lane, and Longview Pool, 321 Bertie Dr. The city's other outdoor pools will remain open for at least another couple of weeks. Some will be ready for swimmers through Sept. 5. Click here for details and hours on the Raleigh pools.
