— Storms that moved through North Carolina on Sunday night will bring cooler temperatures to start the work week, but it will feel like summer by the weekend.

Heavy rain began falling in areas northwest of Raleigh on Sunday afternoon, but by time the system reached the Triangle, the rain was scattered. WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said showers will remain in the forecast Sunday night as a cold front moves in.

"It'll be cooler tomorrow morning. We'll wake up with temperatures in the 50s," Maze said.

The chance for showers will remain in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday as the rain keeps temperatures in the low 70s, but the cool weather won't last long.

"At the end of next week, it really starts to cook," Maze said.

Temperatures will climb back into the 80s by Wednesday and the Triangle could see it's first 90 degree day of the year this weekend.
