Raleigh, N.C. — After a cloudy Monday in the Triangle, residents will need to get out their rain gear Tuesday.
"All of us are saying 'yuck,'" said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.
Tuesday started off chilly and overcast, with temperatures in the low 50s, and it didn't get much warmer.
Rainfall began during the morning hours and settled into the area by 5 p.m.
“Make sure you leave the house with some kind of rain gear, because at some point in the day ... you’ll likely run into some of that rain,” said WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze.
The wet weather is expected to continue Wednesday when a warm front moving into the region will bring warmer temperatures with highs in the 70 and an unstable air mass that could lead to thunderstorms.
Some parts of the Triangle could see more than an inch of rain by Wednesday night, but skies are expected to clear Thursday, and the forecast will remain dry through the weekend.
Maze said the forecast looks good for Saturday’s Halloween festivities. Temperatures are expected to reach the high 60s.
“It looks pretty good for Halloween. Dry for the ghosts and goblins out there,” said Maze.
