Saturday night and Sunday morning will be chilly and damp as rain moved out of the Triangle, WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell said.

With "plenty of moisture" and 5 to 6 mph winds, conditions are favorable for dense fog to set in overnight Saturday and early Sunday.

That cloud coverage will slowly clear out beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday, making way for a sunny afternoon.

Temperatures will be in the upper 30s and mid-40s throughout the area overnight Saturday. Those temperatures will climb into the mid-50s Sunday, which will be a good day to find a Christmas tree and decorate for the holidays outside, Campbell said.

"Try to push those outdoor weather plans back to the afternoon," she said.

Rain will return Monday, though, with a high of 62 in the Triangle.

Tuesday be clearer with temperatures in the 50s, but the end of the work week will be colder, with temperatures dropping into the 40s Wednesday through Friday.
