"We'll see a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms through Monday night, then it will be fairly dry through Tuesday and Wednesday," said WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel.

Temperatures will be pleasant this week with highs in the low 80s and overnight lows in the 60s.

The rain and isolated storms over the past 18 hours accumulated to about an inch or two across the Triangle. 

More severe storms blasted the Northeast with heavy rain, thunderstorms, high winds and hail.

    The rain and isolated storms will linger for several days, with downpours dumping one to two inches of rain on parts of the Triangle.

    "The main threat around here is going to be some heavy rain, Wilmoth said. "We could have some localized flooding, especially as we get into tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening. We're going to have rain for quite some time."

    lol

    What does NWS stand for? National Weather Service which has been around since Feb. 9th, 1870.

    We didn't get anywhere near an inch and what thunderstorms??? I guess this forecast is just something thrown together to appease everyone

    "simplelogic, I believe this forecast once again came from the WRAL model run."

    What does NWS stand for? That's the forecast you quoted from, to prove your point. As for fantasy land, that's where forecasts are 100% accurate. Models are just that - models. They aren't reality. The future will be what it will be, regardless of our attempts to nail it down. That's reality, especially when it comes to something as complex and dynamic as weather.

    Slight chance of a shower Friday afternoon and evening, otherwise, we've seen our rain for the next 10-15 days. Don't cancel your outdoor plans this weeek based on this laughable forecast.
