Rain showers roll in, cooler days on tap for Triangle
Clouds will build in through the day Monday and temperatures will drop, the result of a back door cold front, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.Posted — Updated
The front will push a wedge of cooler air from the north into North Carolina, and by week's end, high temperatures – in the unseasonably warm 70s over the past week – will drop closer to normal.
On Monday, temperatures that were in the mid-60s before dawn will drop through the 50s by late afternoon.
Although there is rain in the forecast Monday through Thursday, none of those days will be a total washout, Gardner said.
Sunday's high temperature of 75 was a the third time in a month that Raleigh saw a record high for the date.
“It’s just been unreal. Our normal highs are in the 50s,” said WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.
