— Central North Carolina will get one more day of showers and storms Sunday, then sunny skies return, and temperatures take a ride on a pleasant see-saw.

Sunday afternoon and night will be the last shot the Triangle and eastern counties have at rain this week.

"It doesn't look like we're going to see severe weather today, but we could see some hit-and-miss showers and a few isolated storms," WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said.

Sunday will see a high in the low 70s, then temperatures will slip into the mid 50s overnight.

After the clouds clear Monday morning, the weather will take a slightly cool turn.

"We'll have a dry cold front move across the region. It'll leave us with plenty of sunshine and lower humidity to start the week," Moss said.

The cold front will jerk temperatures down, but they'll rebound quickly – and never leave a pleasant, seasonable range for the start of spring.

Monday will see a high around 76 degrees and a low in the 40s. Tuesday will likely be the coolest day of the week, with a high in the low 60s and low in the 40s again.

The 70s will return again in the mid week, but the 60s will likely put in for another daily high on Friday.

On average, temperatures range from a daily high in the mid 50s to daily lows in the low 40s in central North Carolina this time of year.
