Raleigh, N.C. — Rain clouds on Tuesday will make for a soggy day but won't bring any severe weather.
Many counties around the Triangle woke up to rain early Tuesday morning. The rain will remain steady through most of the day, and some areas might hear a rumble of thunder.
"At 1 (p.m.), plenty of rain still across our area," said WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. "Then in the afternoon, especially south and east of the Triangle, we'll have a better chance of some storms."
The rain clouds will begin to move out around 6 p.m., Gardner said, before the skies clear overnight to bring a bright, cool Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures will reach into the mid-60s through the week, but those numbers will climb into the high 60s and low 70s over the weekend and into early next week.
"Sunday and Monday look beautiful as our temperatures climb back into the 70s," Gardner said. "And it does look dry. Today, really our best chance of rain all week."
