Chance for rain returns Tuesday night, Wednesday

Posted October 18, 2011

A cold front and low pressure system converged over North Carolina to creating a chance for showers and thunderstorms Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

People headed to the fair should expect to get wet if they stay past 7 or 8 p.m. when showers are expected to kick up in Raleigh, WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said. 

Highs climbed back into the 80s Tuesday. Overnight lows will remain mild ahead of the cold front and should stay in the low to mid 60s. 

Much of the significant rain will be finished by midday Wednesday but showers could still pop up as the cold front clears from west to east. Highs will remain mild Wednesday, reaching the mid 70s.

That will change quickly after the front clears, however, as high temperatures later in the week won't climb out of the low 60s.  

Low temperatures will fall into the uppers 40s Wednesday night and could be down near 40 by early Friday morning.

The cool, dry pattern should remain in place throughout the weekend and into the first part of next week.

    I know, that's exactly why they should pay me. The only thing you see in your magic ball is that 30K the school board lost for ya'. It will continue to fog your ball until you figure it all out.
