— A low-level band of moisture pushing south across North Carolina on Tuesday morning could bring patches of drizzles to the eastern part of the state.

A few sprinkles and light showers rolled through the Triangle on Monday night after temperatures hovered in the 70s around the region during the day.

The bright weekend sunshine, though, will be fickle through Tuesday.

"A little bit of a question mark about whether that low-level moisture mixes out in some places and allows some sunshine or it kind of hangs in there today and gives us a low overcast through most of the day," said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.

Moving in from the west is a stronger system that will move across North Carolina on Wednesday, Moss said. The system could bring heavier rains in the late morning and afternoon, though temperatures could still climb into the high 60s.

"(It) will likely bring some bands of showers that will could heavy in spots, and possibly one or two stronger severe thunderstorms," Moss said.
