Storms possible south of Triangle

— Storms are likely south of the Triangle on Friday as a cold front slips toward South Carolina.

The same front pushed into the state Thursday, bringing sporadic storms to the Triangle and reports of hail and wind damage in some spots.

"We still have the potential for thunderstorms and showers along this front," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "Anything that happens today is going to be down south."

As the cold front departs, drier air will settle in - a welcomed change from the high humid of the last few days.

Highs Friday will be in the mid-80s around the region.

    I live down in Harnett and was speaking to some of my neighbors who noticed like I did that storms generally come in from the west, from Lee, but then often stop at the western Harnett County line, disappear, and then reappear on the other side of the eastern Harnett County line into Johnston.

    I wonder why that happens so often that many people down here now notice it.

    Praying for rain down here in Harnett, but God can keep the violent part of a storm, if He doesn't mind. ;o)

    Hope it's a better chance than the last several days forecasts stated because I only see one thing, something that they clearly do not,

    the drought is back.

    Water your lawns.

    Agree! And whats "Muggy"? Must be a scientific term I've never heard!

    I just wish it would rain by us! Haven't had rain in about 2 weeks! Maybe today??

    I've never heard the air called sticky. So, I guess we could call it "fly paper weather" since it's "sticky". At least the insects will be stuck today and unable to fly, huh? We need some rain also. The storms seem to go around our house every time.
