— Cloudy skies may yield spotty areas of rain across the Triangle Tuesday evening with the chance for precipitation increasing towards daybreak, WRAL Meteorologist Greg Fishel reported. Some areas may get up to an inch of rain.

Fishel said overnight lows will not be quite as cold as they were early in the week -- dipping only into the lower 40s at the coolest parts of the Triangle to the north. To the north and northwest, temperatures will likely hover in the 40s through the night, whereas across the Triangle and to the south and southeast counties, it will stay in the 50s and 60s.

Wednesday will dawn cloudy with rain likely making the morning commute messy. Showers could linger into the afternoon.
