Durham elections officials finish state-ordered recount — The Durham County Board of Elections has completed its recount of more than 90,000 ballots. State elections officials ordered the recount last week, saying the technical problems that led the vote totals to be reported late on Election Night threatened the integrity of the election.

Raleigh, N.C. — A cold front hovering over North Carolina on Wednesday will push north on Thursday, dragging a warm front and possible isolated showers into the Triangle.
The backdoor cold front that crept down from the Northeast will do a quick about-face on Thursday to bring the slight chance of wet weather.
"It's going to put us back into some slightly warmer air," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. "It will move us into a little more unstable, unsettled air mass."
Wednesday's clear, dry weather could be interrupted on Thursday by a 20 percent chance of light, scattered rain. As the warm front moves out and another cold front moves in on Friday, though, the possibility of rain jumps sharply to 60 percent.
"Here comes our cold front on Friday," Gardner said. "A chance of some scattered thunderstorms—none of those likely to be severe or strong. But that's going to bring us our best chance of rain all week."
Gardner said the rain could linger into Saturday morning, but the skies will clear in through the afternoon.
