It's going to be a slow, frustrating transition to drier weather. Monday had scattered showers. A stray evening shower remains possible, and fog or drizzle is possible near the Blue Ridge late tonight. Tuesday and Wednesday probably have less shower coverage, but we are still not "out of the woods". Beginning Thursday, we begin a warmer/drier trend.

We are in a highly anomalous weather pattern for late May. To illustrate how unusual this is, most spots in NW NC set a record for the coolest high temperature for the date Sunday.
An upper level low moves from Upstate SC today to Eastern NC Tuesday. It then gradually fades along the NC Coast. A surface low drifts from Near Winston-Salem this morning to near Hatteras Tuesday morning. Meanwhile, high pressure centered in Eastern Canada slips into New England and builds slowly southwestward by Wednesday.
We are still in an unstable atmosphere. Isolated showers remain possible this evening. Tuesday and Wednesday, lots of clouds remain with widely scattered daytime showers (thunder possible). Early fog is possible both days. Temperatures tick up but are still below seasonal averages.
Thursday and Friday, high pressure build's into the Southeast. We return to more typical weather--warmer with isolated afternoon and early evening showers and thundershowers.
A weak front moves through Saturday. Temperatures remain seasonal, and I cannot rule out a daytime shower or thundershower. Sunday... You guessed it. We still cannot rule out a stray, light shower.
