Raleigh, N.C. — After a cloudy and chilly Monday, temperatures will warm up and stay that way for much of the week ahead.
Signaling the first frost of the season, low temperatures Sunday morning were one degree higher than the record low of 23 degrees, but the day rapidly warmed up.
While Monday morning temperatures weren't as chilling, it will be a cool day, with highs in the low 50s. Mostly cloudy skies indicate that rain showers are possible, especially in the morning, and some drizzle may linger into the afternoon.
The clouds and rain on Sunday evening made it difficult for some to view the supermoon from anywhere other than the northernmost counties, but clearer skies on Monday afternoon should give sky gazers a second opportunity. The rain should cease by 6 p.m., and that's the best time to look for the supermoon.
"You will have another chance to catch the supermoon Monday night if you had clouds or rain Sunday, and then again potentially on Tuesday morning," Wilmoth said.
Temperatures are not expected to dip below freezing again for the remainder of the week with highs in 60s, and temperatures could possibly climb into the 70s by Friday.
Temperatures are expected to be in the low 50s on Saturday for the start of the WRAL Christmas Parade, and will climb into the 60s by time the parade concludes.
