— The Triangle will see temperatures dip into the 20s this week, but, although the week starts out dreary and wet, the cold winds and falling precipitation will fail to combine in just the right mix for snow.

“When you get up tomorrow morning, it’s going to be a meteorological state of shock across the viewing area," WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said. "It is going to be so much more colder than it is today.”

Temperatures will slowly fall throughout the evening, but then drop to 28 degrees overnight. 

Morning commuters will wake up to 29 degrees, with Tuesday's high reaching 36 degrees - 26 degrees below normal for this time of year, Fishel said.

Temperatures will stay in the low 40s on Wednesday and the low 50s for the rest of the week.
