Storm chances increase Tuesday for Triangle

Posted August 1, 2016

— After a week of dangerously high heat index values, Monday started off with cooler temperatures and a chance for rain that will linger through midweek.

The Triangle didn't see any wet weather Monday as storms remained in the southern counties and storms that made appearances in Cumberland and Harnett counties were not severe.

As a cold front moves in Tuesday, the entire area has a greater chance at seeing storms and that front could stick around to create more storms through Wednesday, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

“If you didn’t get any rain today, you have the opportunity to see more tomorrow and Wednesday,” he said.

Despite the high humidity fueling the wet weather, temperatures will remain cooler, with highs in the low 90s and upper 80s and low heat index values.

'There may be some locations that see heat index values of 102, but it's no repeat of last week," Maze said.
