Big changes coming behind approaching cold front

Posted September 11, 2014

7-Day Forecast

— Temperatures soared into the upper 80s Thursday afternoon, but major changes are on the way behind a cold front that will arrive in the Triangle late in the day, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

"It may feel hot today, but don't let it bother you," she said. "We may not get back to near 90 degrees for the rest of the year, so this could be the end of our summer-like pattern."

Rain showers and scattered thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon, but the bulk of the rainfall will arrive overnight and Friday, when clouds and scattered showers will keep daytime highs in the 70s.

"We've got a 50 percent chance to see showers and storms Friday afternoon, and it will continue to be wet over the weekend," Gardner said. "Some areas could get up to 2 inches of additional rain by Saturday night."

Showers may be less numerous early next week, but cloud cover will be a big feature of the forecast. Clouds will help the cooler temperatures will linger through at least the next week, with highs in the 70s and lows in the mid-60s.
