Johnson: Rain likely Sunday following overnight frost

— Temperatures were well below freezing Sunday morning in the Triangle and surrounding areas, but the day will warm up quickly as evening showers head our way.

Frost covered cars and rooftops early Sunday morning, and temperatures were in the 20s around the Triangle, signaling the first freeze of the season and the end of the growing season for most of the area, according to WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy, but the sun will make an appearance, warming things up quite a bit. “We’ll be in the mid 50s by lunchtime, and temperatures will likely reach 60 degrees by 5 p.m.,” said Johnson.

With those warmer temperatures come a good chance for rain. According to Johnson, there’s about a 50 percent chance for rain and thunder in the Triangle and areas south and southeast of it as evening approaches.

The rain will likely carry over into Monday, and day highs will stay in the low 50s. By Tuesday, temperatures will start warming up again, and highs will be in the 60s.
