Raleigh, N.C. — Temperatures will drop slightly as a cold front moves through the area late Tuesday, bringing more rain, WRAL Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.
"Earlier today, there were some big thunderstorms across the Southeast. A lot of them weakened with time," Fishel said. "We still run the risk of seeing a shower or two throughout the course of the evening."
With a slight chance of thunderstorms, the Red Cross recommends these safety tips:
Temperatures for Wednesday are expected to be in the upper 50s and low 60s. Thursday is expected to be cooler still, with highs in the lower 50s and lows in the low 40s.
Friday’s high was expected to be in the mid-70s. Rain is expected Friday evening into Saturday morning as another cold front moves into the area.
