Raleigh, N.C. — Some light rain could fall over the Triangle Wednesday, but it won't amount to much, said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.
After a frost advisory and the coldest morning of the season on Tuesday, temperatures will warm up some on Wednesday. Temperatures will be in the low 50s in the morning before climbing into the 60s by lunchtime, peaking around 64 degrees.
As temperatures climb on Wednesday, so does the chance for rain. According to Moss, a cold front arriving in the area will bring with it a band or two of moisture, and there will be a chance for sprinkles and light showers accompanied by cloudy skies right before noon.
"The chance of measurable rain will peak in the Triangle mid-morning to early afternoon, with the chances a little higher to the north and northeast and vice versa," said Moss. "Where rain does occur, amounts will tend to be quite light, mainly a trace to a few hundredths of an inch."
Temperatures on Thursday will be almost identical to Wednesday, but the chance for rain is not as great. Things could warm up drastically by Friday, which, with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s, is expected to be the warmest day of the week.
