Clouds, drizzle set tone for the week

— Clouds and daylong mist and drizzle Monday will set the tone for much of this week.

"It's chilly out there. It's wet. We've got the cloud cover to deal with," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said early Monday.

A system that dropped up to an inch of rain in the Triangle overnight will move off to the north through the morning.

"The rain will taper off, but it will remain cloudy and chilly for the bulk of the day," Gardner said.

North Carolinians should get used to those conditions.

"The clouds will be hanging around, and they're going to hang around for a while," Gardner said.

"As we get into Wednesday and Thursday, there may be a few holes in the clouds here and there, but still more clouds than sunshine."

Thanksgiving Day could also see some stray showers.

"Finally, by Friday, the sun comes out – just in time for shopping," Gardner said.

Meanwhile, temperatures will stay cool. Monday will see a high in the low 50s, then temperatures will hit highs in the low 60s and lows in the mid 40s through Thanksgiving Day.

    I would hope WRAL and all of the other triangle media will "drop" the drought reporting. I don't know about other folks, but I live in Northeastern Johnston County and it has been one of the wettest Fall's that I can ever remember. We have had rain at least every 3rd day and lot's of it, especially with Ida. I know some parts of the state may be drier than others but rest assured, I don't think we are in the parched drought that North Carolina suffered in the summer of 2008. My swamp feeling yard, driveway and ditches will attest to it.
