— By the time we get out of bed on Tuesday, WRAL Meteorologist Kat Campbell said temperatures will feel much cooler than they did on Monday, thanks to a cold front.

The cooler air hangs around on Tuesday as temperatures start out in the 40s, before topping out around 50 degrees during the afternoon. Temps will continue to drop as highs struggle to climb out of the 40s for Wednesday and Thursday.

"Temperatures will feel more like winter starting tomorrow," said WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell.

Tuesday's high will top out at 52 degrees under mostly cloudy skies.

Temperatures will fall gradually throughout the week, and a chance for rain won't come again until the weekend, when wintry precipitation is possible as temperatures fall into the low 40s.

At this point, it's too early to tell for sure if it will snow.

"There are a lot of questions about what could happen this weekend, and the bottom line is - we just don't know yet," Campbell said. "We are going to have to be patient."

According to Campbell, it's too early to predict who will get snow or when it will arrive, but people with travel plans should monitor the weather as the weekend gets closer.
