Raleigh, N.C. — After a frigid weekend, it will be several days before we can put those winter coats back in the closet.
Monday's early morning forecast appears to be wet.
"I don't think we'll have any thunder or lightning, but the rain could come down pretty hard Sunday night when you are asleep," said WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel.
"But we should see clearing into the late morning and afternoon," he said.
After Monday's sprinkles, the rest of the week looks dry with sunny to partly cloudy skies.
Fishel said the sun should emerge by Monday afternoon as any leftover rain moves east.
Tuesday will be partly cloudy and comfortably cool, with highs in the uppers 50s.
Wednesday's temperatures will be a bit warmer, with highs in the upper 50s, before they approach normal ranges in the 60s again by Thursday and the weekend.
This coming weekend will be much warmer than last with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.
