We will not have much need for our sunglasses this week, but we certainly need our umbrella at least to the start the week.

Off-and-on showers that have been moving into North Carolina since late Sunday night will be with us for much of Monday. However, we will likely will not have as much rain around in the afternoon compared to the morning.

The wet start to the week comes with warm weather. Temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s are expected through early afternoon in southeastern North Carolina.  Cooler air moving into the state from the north will cause temperatures to drop through the 50s and possibly eventually into the 40s through the afternoon in northeastern North Carolina and along the Outer Banks.

As the cooler air settles into the entire state, low temperatures late Monday night into Tuesday morning will drop to the upper 30s and low 40s across the region.

Tuesday will be a cloudy and chilly day with highs only in the upper 40s to near 50. Patchy light rain or drizzle will be possible.
