Raleigh, N.C. — Rain showers associated with a slow-moving low pressure system will begin moving out of North Carolina after lunchtime Tuesday, although clouds will likely linger throughout the rest of the day.
"We'll start to see things tapering off by lunchtime, but we won't see much sun today," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.
High temperatures will climb only into the mid-40s during the afternoon.
As skies clear overnight, temperatures will drop to around freezing on Wednesday morning.
Daytime highs will be in the low 50s on Wednesday and Thursday, but another shot of arctic air will rush into the area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Overnight lows will be in the 20s late in the work week, and highs could be in the 30s and low 40s on Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will stay in the 20s on Sunday after starting in the teens, Gardner said.
"We could end up with a record cold high temperatures for Sunday, and we'll be in the teens again to start the day next Monday," she said.
