— Hit-and-miss showers and storms will replace widespread rainfall Sunday as an upper-level disturbance slinks off to eastern North Carolina.

It will leave behind a weak front with just enough moisture that, combined with rising temperatures in the afternoon, could spark a few showers and thunderstorms.

"Getting into the afternoon, we expect that even as the rainfall coverage drops off, we'll still have a chance at some showers," WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said.

Periods of dry weather will be interspersed with occasional showers and storms from mid-day into the afternoon. Clouds will linger into the evening, but the weather will dry up.

Sunday will see a high around 76 degrees and an overnight low in the mid 50s.

Monday will kick the work week off to a fair start, with a mix of sun and clouds. Slightly warmer temperatures will rise to around 80 degrees.
