— Rain that soaked central North Carolina early Sunday pushed off to the coast, making way for partly sunny skies.

There were heavy showers along the Interstate 95 corridor as the sun rose Sunday, with lighter showers to the west across the Triangle. The thick band of rain moved out of the region by lunchtime, said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.

Even though the threat of rain has diminished for the day, there may still be an isolated shower this.

“There's a cold front moving in from the west," Moss said. "As that front comes through here, there's just a slight chance of a stray sprinkle or shower while we see partly to mostly cloudy skies."

Monday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high temperature of 56 degrees for Martin Luther King Day.

The rest of the week will see highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s with just a slight chance of rain on Wednesday.
