High temperatures across the Triangle will struggle to hit the 60 degree mark Sunday afternoon, the result of a dry cold front that crosses the central part of the state late Saturday.

"It will get a bit blustery and much colder," said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss. "We could see some wind gusts in the 25-35 mph range."

Sunday night will remain clear as temperatures drop to about 40 degrees across the state.

Monday brings a brief warm-up, into the mid 70s, but the bulk of the work week will require a jacketas temperatures struggle to climb out of the 60s.

"Monday will be warmer, but northwest winds may gust to about 25 mph," Moss said.

Another cold front Monday night will make Tuesday the coolest day of the week.

"We could see a couple of clouds and maybe a stray sprinkle or shower late Monday as the front moves in," Moss said.

The chance of storms stays out of the picture until at least Thursday.
