— After a gray weekend of sleet, snow and rain, the new work week will be drastically sunny and warm in comparison.

Sunday ​afternoon will be sunny but chilly, according to WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss, with highs in the low 40s. The day started in the 20s, which made some roads, bridges and ramps in the area slick in some spots. A winter weather advisory for the area expired at 10 a.m.

Monday and Tuesday will be much warmer than the weekend, with highs in the low 50s and plenty of sunshine.

On Wednesday, a cold front to the east of the Triangle will bring colder temperatures to the area, and highs will be in the mid to upper 30s despite bright skies.

According to Moss, temperatures will warm up a bit for Thursday and even more so over the weekend, when highs reenter the 50s. Light rain is likely throughout the work week, but conditions will remain much drier than the weekend.

Person County Schools, Granville County Schools and Caswell County Schools announced they would operate Monday on two-hour delays.
