Showers possible any day this week

— Showers are possible throughout central North Carolina this week as temperatures make their way back into the 90s.

Areas south and east of Raleigh should expect rain Monday morning before showers make their way to Raleigh later in the afternoon. 

Temperatures will warm into the low 90s when the sun peeks through, but there is about a 30 percent chance for rain every day this week. 

No severe storms are in the forecast, and showers will be passing rather than sustained. No single day will be a total washout this week, but there's a chance for rain each afternoon.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Bertha emerged from the eastern Dominican Republic early Sunday after whipping Puerto Rico with heavy rains and strong winds that knocked out power in parts of the region.

Bertha is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane late Tuesday or early Wednesday, but it is expected to stay well offshore in the Atlantic Ocean.

"There is an upper level trough over the eastern United States that looks like it will steer the storm toward the north and then toward the northeast in the next couple days," WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said. "It will be well to the east of North Carolina and well to the west of Bermuda, so hopefully no huge impacts on either of those locations."

    So, no day this week will be a complete washout. Has anyone seen the forecast now for Saturday? Isn't Saturday one of the days in this week?

    Seriously? This travesty of journalism is still up? What bothers me is the absolute truckloads of ad dollars you guys get for spreading misinformation and harmful trend pieces. Chicago Trib yourselves.

    "Any day this week" translates to "we don't really have a clue what the weather will be."

    As they proved with this weekend's forecasting performance.

    And this just in....Daylight is possible, more so between the hours of 6am and 9pm, but temperatures are likely to occur at any time. Lingering effects from any sandnadoes should be mild, if they occur at all.
    Stick to YouTube and Twitter, they've already happened. "Forecasting" ain't your thing.
