— Wednesday started off warm and muggy and will continue with sporadic showers throughout the day, according to WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.

"The rain may pick up tonight," she said.

Wednesday's highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

A cold front moving in from the north will prompt the development of a few scattered showers at times.

The front will usher in an air mass that will make the Triangle a little cooler in the coming days.

Thursday should drop into the 70s. The best chance of showers that day will likely be over the Piedmont and Sandhills with spotty coverage for the coastal plain.

The remainder of the week should be cloudy with highs in the upper 70s.

    you people think humans are Gods. like we can walk on water, fix any bad health problems, predict weather. do you realize how retarded it sounds to even predict it remotely correct?

    Wow, they actually moved this to the top? LOL Now the comments are going to fly. Seriously, am I the only one who saw Fishel last night and that graphic that showed us dry all day until late tonight?

    Sporadic showers? I had a monsoon at 7:30 this morning. I thing Fishel needs a new computer. The one he was using last night at the 6:00 news showed only a 5% chance or less of rain here all day until later tonight. And a 7 day forecast is useless. They are lucky to get it right 48 hours out.

    "sporadic" kind of like wral's ever changing forecasts? couldn't get it right if ABC did it for them!

    SPRINKLES!!!! Should we start building the next ark? Also, I noticed the 7-day forecast looks nothing like it did at 10:00 last night...I know weather forecasting isn't an exact science, but geez.
