— Temperatures were cooler Sunday after fall started off last week with above average temperatures.

Temperatures peaked in the mid 70s Sunday as low clouds and cooler air behind a cold front kept things mild.

"It's actually warmer over parts of the mountains where the cold front has not moved through," WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.

Although clouds lingered over the Triangle Sunday, periods of rain were minimal with most areas seeing only a mist. The greater chance to see rain and thunderstorms will come Monday night into Tuesday, Wilmoth said.

The work week ahead will be much milder as well, with highs only reaching the upper 70s each day.

The storms and cloudy skies keeping the heat at bay should wrap up by Thursday, but temperatures will remain mild through the weekend as fall weather approaches.
