Sunday will be another day with nice weather -- that means low humidity and sunshine. Temperatures will be in the 80s on Sunday, and then the week ahead temperatures will drop to be a bit cooler. Next week will be less humid and the weather will be in the 70s.

Sunday will be the last mostly dry day before another week of storms. There's a still a 20% chance of rain, but if you see rain on Sunday it will only be a small storm and leave quickly. Mostly likely, those scattered showers will be later in the day.

Next week, expect grey and rainy skies. Temperatures will look milder, with highs in the lower 80s and upper 70s.

From Monday through Wednesday there's a 50% chance of rain, so if you want to get some yard work done, it's best to do it Sunday. The Triangle could see a couple of inches of rain next week, and the coast of North Carolina could see upwards of 5 inches of rain.

The rain is coming from a low-pressure system will hover over our state and bring us heavy rain for a couple days.

The low pressure system that hovers is called a "cut-off low."

"Essentially, it's just going to be cut-off from that main flow of the jet stream," WRAL meteorologist Peta Sheerwood said. "Typically, the jet stream keeps systems moving in and out, but with this being cut off, it's just going to stay there."

Friday the low-pressure system will move out of the area and we will start to see dry weather and sunny skies again.
