— Tuesday will have a mild start, but colder temperatures will roll in by late afternoon along with some light rain.

"Instead of it being in the 60s to near 70s, temperatures will be in the 40s in most spots by tomorrow evening. In Raleigh, it could be in the mid-40s by mid-afternoon," WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

Monday's high was 70 with a low of 54 degrees. Normal temperatures for this time of the year are a high of 53 and a low of 33.

Temperatures will hold in the 50s overnight as the cold boundary travels into central North Carolina.

"It will be quite a shocking change when that boundary passes through your particular neck of the woods," Fishel said.

In the evening, clouds will linger with some spotty drizzle and temperatures in the low to mid-40s.
