Raleigh, N.C. — Forecasters predicted that clouds, rain and chilly temperatures will linger for another day.
"Don't put the umbrellas away just yet because you are going to need them for (Monday)," WRAL meteorologist Kim Deaner said.
Another disturbance will push in Monday, starting up the rain again. Rainfall will taper off Monday night.
While the rain falls, temperatures will stay low. Monday will be in the low 50s – off by double digits from the normal highs in the low 60s.
By Monday evening, rainfall totals will be substantial, particularly in areas around and west of Raleigh. Through Monday, between a half-inch and 1 inch of rain could fall.
That will come on top of rainfall totals from Friday, Saturday and Sunday: a total of over 2 inches at the Raleigh-Durham Airport.
