— Pop-up thunderstorms and showers are possible Monday as a cold front that moved through central North Carolina overnight stalls southeast of the Triangle.

"We're not going to have widespread storms – just spotty showers and thunderstorms" WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

Areas to the south of the Triangle, including Fayetteville, Clinton and Goldsboro, will have the best chance of storms.

While there is drier air behind the front, the stall will prevent it from reaching the region. Muggy conditions will remain.

"Because that front's going to stall, I can't promise you we'll see a big drop in our humidity," Gardner said.

Highs for much of the upcoming work week are expected to reach the upper 80s and some 90s.

    I've been down here nearly 14 years now, and this is the mildest summer I've experienced. I'm loving it!
