Raleigh, N.C. — The Triangle will wake up to a chilly, wet morning.
Monday's early morning forecast will be rainy, but WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner doesn't expect it to last all day.
"Once this band moves through, we're finished with rain for the day," said Gardner. "This isn't going to have a major impact on our daylight hours."
As the rain moves away from the Triangle on Monday, it will move east, affecting Wilson and Rocky Mount. Gardner said the rain should be moving out of the Triangle by 9 a.m.
After Monday's sprinkles, the rest of the week looks dry with sunny to partly cloudy skies.
Though it will still be chilly, temperatures will not be as frigid Monday as they were over the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 50s through Wednesday before temperatures feel like fall again, getting into the 60s, on Thursday.
"After having two nights with below-freezing temperatures, we have no freezing temperatures in our forecast this week," said Gardner.
The remainder of the work week will be dry before the chance for rain reappears Saturday.
