Cold weather on tap for week

Posted November 23, 2008 11:21 p.m. EST

— North Carolinians can expect a cold week ahead.

The low to mid 50s will dominate from Sunday and through all next week – except for Tuesday, when a high around 48 degrees is expected. Lows will dip into the low 30s and high 20s.

Monday will be the warmest day of the week, with a high around 55 degrees and a chance of rain late in the day.

"We will start off mostly clear and as we head into tomorrow morning, we are going to see more cloud cover than clear skies," WRAL meteorologist Kim Deaner said.

A cold front and upper level trough will increase the chance of rain from Monday afternoon into early Tuesday.
