Raleigh, N.C. — Skies will remain clear overnight and into Sunday, but overnight lows are expected to dip below freezing, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
"Skies will be clear Saturday night and into Sunday, but temperatures will continue to drop overnight," she said.
Overnight lows are expected to dip into the upper 20s to low 30s across central North Carolina before warming up on Sunday.
"Sunday will be a beautiful day," Wilmoth said. "We will have mostly sunny skies with temperatures topping out in the 50s."
Another low pressure system is expect to make its way into the area late Sunday night and Monday, giving us the chance for some light rain on Monday.
"Monday will be dreary, but the rain will be light," Wilmoth said.
Once the early-week showers clear out, colder air will arrive for several days. Highs will be in the low 40s Tuesday through Friday, and overnight lows will be in the low-to mid-20s throughout the bulk of the work week.
