The storm will be in its early stages when it tracks near the Carolinas and will bring some rain to Raleigh starting on Monday afternoon with the better chance of steadier rain on Monday night.

Dry air will move in on Tuesday behind the storm system and will bring an end to the rain. The storm will also send a shot of cold air deep into the Southeast. Highs will only be in the mid-to-upper 40s on Wednesday and Thursday with lows in the low-to-mid-20s.

Warmth will try to build back in at the end of the week with a chance for some rain by the weekend.
