— Few people saw thunderstorms Wednesday as a line of storms moved through the region during the afternoon hours, but the chance of rain remains in the forecast for the next several days.

No severe thunderstorm warnings or watches were issued Wednesday as a line of showers and storms began moving through the region just after 4 p.m., but quickly fell apart.

Thursday brings another chance for wet weather, but WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said the chance to see rain decreases for most people.

“I think we’ll see fewer storms tomorrow but those that do could have some damaging winds and large hail,” Maze said.

Maze said current forecast models predict that most of the wet weather will occur to the south and west of the Triangle.

Friday will bring the best chance of rain as a slow-moving cold front pushes into the state.

A cold front will move through the area Saturday, bringing the chance of a pop-up storm along with cooler temperatures for the weekend.
