The region is under a level 1 risk for severe weather on Monday, with scattered storms likely to move in after 4 p.m.
According to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner, the storms should move through from the northwest to the southeast quickly and have the potential to produce strong, gusty winds.
Before that, Monday will be a mostly dry day with cloudy skies and a high around 80 degrees in Raleigh. Isolated rain is possible, but the day won’t be a washout.
The level 1 threat applies for Tuesday, too. Like Monday, storms will be isolated in nature, and not everyone will see rain. Highs will again be in the low 80s.
The middle of the week looks sunny and warmer, with highs in the mid 80s for Wednesday and Thursday.
Highs will fall into the mid 60s for Friday and the weekend, and rain should not be an issue.
