— Clouds and rain began to roll into parts of central North Carolina on Saturday evening as a cold front moves into the state.

"The main event is both back off to the west, and we'll also begin to see some moisture come in (from the south) late tonight," said WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth. "The rain could be heavy at times, especially from the Fayetteville area to the south toward Wilmington."

Mid-Atlantic Radar

Wilmoth said we could see wind gusts up to 35 mph associated with the front.

"Hit-and-miss showers will be possible all day," she said. "We will see periods of dry time too."

Highs on Sunday will top out in the mid 60s.

On Monday, the cold pocket of air moving across the country will knock morning temperatures into the mid-30s, and the day's high will only be about 20 degrees higher.

"We'll wake up Monday morning in the mid-30s and recover only into the mid- to upper-50s," Wilmoth said.

7-Day Forecast

Skies will remain clear Monday and into Tuesday.

Halloween will be mild, Wilmoth said.

"We won't have to worry about rain or any kind of precipitation. The weather looks great for the kids who will be trick-or-treating," she said.
