Raleigh, N.C. — Easter Sunday was a dreary and damp day for most of central North Carolina as rain moved through the area.
A front moving through the area brought rain Sunday morning and evening. Temperatures topped out in the mid- to upper 60s.
Skies should clear by Monday morning, although a few scattered showers could linger in some of the southeastern North Carolina counties.
Monday will be nice and warm, with highs climbing into the 70s for only the third day this year.
In 2012, there were eight 80-degree days in March. The normal high temperature for late March is 62 degrees.
The 70-degree highs, however, will be short-lived.
Wilmoth said another front making its way into the area Monday night is expected to send temperatures back into the mid- to upper 50s for much of the rest of the work week.
