Showers, storms possible through holiday weekend as front stalls
Posted July 3, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — A stalled front and area of low pressure will keep the weather unsettled across North Carolina throughout the Fourth of July holiday weekend.
Afternoon and evening showers moved though the area Friday night, and storms are possible Saturday and Sunday, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
"There are lots of firework shows scheduled across the area Saturday, and it's really going to be iffy as to whether they all happen as scheduled," she said.
Saturday will include a little more sunshine with highs topping out in the upper 80s, but there is a chance for rain in the evening.
"Some folks will have their cookouts and firework shows with no problems, and others will get wet," she said. "You will want to bring your rain gear with you to your outdoor activites."
The wet weather is not expected to be widespread and will move through the central part of the state quickly, she said.
Overnight lows will drop into the 60s before warming up into the 80s again on Sunday.
More wet weather is possible on Sunday, although drier conditions will arrive in the area during the first half of next week.
