Showers stay south, east of Triangle
Posted September 2, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Most parts of the Triangle got a chance to dry out Monday, a day after drenching rains led to flash floods across the region.
To the east, in Nash, Sampson and Wayne counties, some showers and thunderstorms formed in the late afternoon, and the chance for rain in that area persists through the evening, according to WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.
Any storms that form could produce damaging winds, heavy rain and lightning, but outbreaks will be more widespread. "These storms will not produce the steady rain we saw Sunday," said WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson.
The weather dries out overnight, with a third day of afternoon storms possible Tuesday.
"Our front moves through after lunch Tuesday, but again the best chance for rain is south and east of the Triangle.," Wilmoth said.
That front brings a cooler, drier trend with high temperatures in the mid-80s and only partly cloudy skies for Wednesday and beyond, she said.
