Thursday afternoon and evening it appears the cold front will be crossing the state. Moisture convergence looks greater so there may be a better concentration of showers and storms across Central North Carolina and Southern Virginia. Notice far to the northwest across Illinois and Iowa another system is developing. This is Friday's system.
Friday afternoon and evening the next feature approaches. This is the area of rain we saw on that last graphic over Illinois and Iowa. This is yet another surface trough of low pressure. This is the third and final system in the series. Again like the first surface trough, the moisture will be limited so there is only a slight chance for a few showers and storms late in the day and perhaps lasting into Friday night.
This is how the next three days are shaping up in today's run of the GFS model. Keep watching WRAL-TV for the latest adjusted forecasts and of course WRAL.com.
