Rain possible for Tuesday morning

Posted May 4, 2009

— A low-pressure system riding along the frontal boundary delivered rain late Monday across central North Carolina. The showers could linger for a while into Tuesday morning, then the chance for rain shifts to the south and east of the Triangle.

"And then another low rides through on Wednesday, which will also give us another chance for storms," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "Then, finally, our weather should calm down."

The forecast for the latter half of the week predicts more sun and a lesser chance of rain, although highs in the 80s remain above normal.

    so what if they do brag? is it necessary for you all to waste the time to bash them on an internet forum? and if they are so wrong, then why do you continue to watch them?

    "Then they TOO will be included in our pending lawsuit to hold ALL of them more accountable!"

    Oh my gosh! Get a life already. Seriously, you want to start a class action suit against the weather folks? That has to be the most ludicrous thing I have heard on GOLO so far. WRAL, you appear to have a stalker. I would look into a protective order!

    It's dry as dust in South Raleigh.

    Rain, please rain.

    But Lord, you can keep the thunder and lightning. k

    God bless.

    preppykev24 - Maybe if they wouldn't brag that they are right so often people wouldn't complain so much when the are mostly wrong.

    OMG, would all of the weathermen and wral haters please go away. It is riduculous what you people will complain about. If you don't like wral or, go away. I think the station will be just fine without you. There are more than enough of us who enjoy the station, it's website, and it's weather personalities. My mom always told me that if I couldn't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all. If we all at GOLO follwed that adage, it would be just a stark few of us. Taking the time to actually complain about weathermen on the internent, incredible.

    Go ahead, wral, you are doing just fine.

    "Forecasting is based on statistics, and statisticians are never certain about anything."

    Then they TOO will be included in our pending lawsuit to hold ALL of them more accountable! Either get it right or go bag groceries! We must hold forecasters who spread gloom & doom, and incorrect info that causes businesses to cancel, close or alter their events, costing them revenue, with incorrect and repeated forecasts that do no materialize A C C O U N T A B L E!

    -RCRCF- for all!

    wow, you all complain like a bunch of kids. they have not lied about the weather. they have said there is the chance (i repeat chance) of severe weather and rain to pop up. just because you did not get any does not mean no one else did. you all know that predicting spring thunderstorms is near impossible. if they say there is a chance of storms, then know you may or may not see it. if you do not see one, then it does not mean that they do not know what they are doing.

    I guess this is one of those weather patterns where we have no idea what really might happen. We've had potential rain in the forecast since noon on Saturday. I honestly haven't seen a drop. Starting to doubt it will rain at all this week.

    I am employed based on the validity and accuracy of what I say and do. Besides her 20% accuracy rate and the obvious adverse reactions to antihistamines, how does Elizabeth Gardner keep a job? If most of us were to produce only 20% of the time, we would be replaced immediately.

    This is getting to be scary. All these "chances" for rain, yet hardly none falls. Another drought year? Let's hope not. I don't feel like hearing Meeker whining about water usage, then whining about decreased revenue from less water usage!
