Triad --  Rain fell heavily across the Piedmont for several hours as a steady stream of moisture pulled out of the Atlantic. Many areas racked up half to a little over an inch of rain in just a few hours.

The plume of moisture continues to slowly progress to the east through the afternoon. That will bring lighter rain and even periods of dry weather behind it. It is even possible that some places could see a few peeks of sun this afternoon. Just don't get too excited if you see the sun because the rain isn't done yet. There could even be an afternoon pop-up thunderstorm in spots.

Monday will be in the mid 60s- about 10 degrees warmer than Sunday. The Triad spent Sunday afternoon in the mid 50s. That was about 20 degrees below average. 

The rain chance persists into Tuesday. Showers are likely at any time with the possibility of a thunderstorm in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 60s.

Wednesday will be the transition day. There is a 40% chance of a shower or thunderstorm, with a high in the upper 60s.

The pick days of the week will be Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the upper 70s, under partly cloudy skies.
