— A chilly Sunday night will kick off a week of pleasant, calm fall weather.

Temperatures will crawl down into the upper 30s to low 40s before dawn Monday, but they won't stay there for long, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.

"It'll be a beautiful start to the work week, and temperatures continue to climb over the next several days," she said.

Few clouds will block the sun Monday, and the mercury will rise into the mid 70s. The daily highs will hit the upper 70s Tuesday and then the low 80s for the rest of the work week. They will fall into the 70s again next weekend.

Rain will not mar the beautiful weather. Only clouds will creep in Tuesday and again on Friday and for the weekend.

"We have a very calm weather pattern over the next week or so," Wilmoth said.
