RALEIGH — A stalled cold front draped across the Triangle will continue to bring showers on Monday and Tuesday, according to Barrett Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Raleigh.
The high temperature for Monday will be in the mid to upper 70s, Smith said. Temperatures Tuesday are expected to climb higher and reach the low 80s.
Much of North Carolina was drying out Sunday night after heavy rain for much of the day.
More than 2 inches fell at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Sunday, setting a record for that date. There were scattered reports of flooded streets, trees down and minor accidents.
The forecast for the week will look a little brighter once the cold front moves toward the coast Wednesday.
Most of North Carolina is not in a drought, but parts of Johnston and Harnett counties are listed as abnormally day, according to last weeks state drought report.
