Raleigh, N.C. — With overcast skies and much cooler temperatures, Tuesday will feel different than the days to come.
Highs will be in the mid 70s on Tuesday, according to Elizabeth Gardner, a stark contrast from the 90 degree temperatures we will see for the rest of the week.
The cool air is the result of a cold front that moved through the area late Monday, bringing storms and rain to the Triangle and surrounding areas.
"We still have a line of showers across the north part of the viewing area this morning," said Gardner. "We have a chance of showers on and off today, but we'll get a nice break from the heat."
According to Gardner, the rain will be light, mostly sprinkles, and scattered, as the precipitation moves away.
There will be a lesser chance for rain Tuesday evening and overnight, and Wednesday and Thursday will be sunny again as the heat returns.
According to Gardner, a chance for storms remains for the rest of the week, but the activity will be scattered, and severe storms are not likely.
