— Temperatures in the Triangle are expected to be in the low- to mid-20s Monday night.

WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said a high-pressure system would linger over central North Carolina  Monday will result in the drop in temperatures. The low temperatures would be the first in the Triangle since February.

Gardner said temperatures were expected to warm up to around 58 degress on Wednesday before dropping again. Another system was expected on Thursday, which could lead to a small chance of rain in the evening.

The area saw temperatures in the mid- to high-40s Sunday, which was cooler than the usual 53 degrees for this time of year.

The region also saw its first significant rainfall in weeks. Officials said nearly an inch to an inch-and-a-half of rain fell across central and eastern North Carolina from early Saturday evening and into early Sunday morning.

The same weather system brought snow across the Northeast, causing flight delays and cancellations at most of the airports on the East Coast including Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Some passengers spent hours waiting at the terminals Sunday.

    When I was a kid, I used to remember wanting it to snow SOOO bad, and it hardly ever did. I decided that I would move to a place that got snow most of the year. Wala, Fairbanks, Alaska. We have snow for around 7 months a year and tonight it is about 20 below zero. It has been really warm for this time of year, we should have already been down to 35 or 40 below for a while now. Hope we can send you some cold and it warms up here...LOL...Here's wishing for you to have a White Christmas!!

    I fail to see how these temperatures are worth noting as 'cold', they seem to be around average for this time of year ... if a bit even on the warm side...?

    WRAL has offended me by calling me "baby." I demand this headline be changed now. I also demand that unless we have snow it should always be 75 degrees and sunny. Cold weather is a waste without snow.
