Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible in the Triangle during the afternoon and evening, and some of the storms could become severe.
“By 6:00, showers and storms will be around and will stay with us through at least midnight,” WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.
Wind damage is the biggest risk from the storms, which could also include heavy downpours. Hail and tornadoes are unlikely, according to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.
Friday will be mostly cloudy with the temperature remaining warm with a high of 85 degrees and low of 69 degrees.
“Afternoon and evening could include more scattered showers and thunderstorms,” Maze said. “It’ll be a very active day tomorrow, so have your umbrellas ready.”
Outdoor festivities on the Fourth of July could also be threatened by rain and thunderstorms throughout the area.
Highs on Saturday and Sunday should be in the upper 80s with lows in the high 60s
