Cold front brings chance for rain to central N.C.

Posted May 3, 2010

— A cold front moving through the state could bring spotty showers to central North Carolina through Tuesday, but there is little chance for anything severe, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

"It's a completely different animal from what it was yesterday over Tennessee," Maze said.

There is a chance some showers could become severe east of the Interstate-95 corridor. The biggest risk from these storms would be strong winds and heavy rain. Even that chance is only very slight, Maze said.

Cloudy skies locked in humidity Monday and kept temperatures in a narrow range. The overnight low Monday is expected to dip into the upper 60s

Tuesday the rain moves out and skies clear, with temperatures returning to the mid 80s.

    And you think it's Greg Fishel's fault? The National Weather Service had us down for 1 - 3 inches of rain, and I DON'T think they got that from watching WRAL. Weather forecasting will never be an exact science; I really don't know what you expect.

    "fooled"? they just simply don't have the common sense or know how to factor in that 9 out of 10 rain events coming this way, will never hold together when it arrives. Why? They won't answer the question which is at the root of their problem, their continuously failed forecasts, they just make excuses or avoid responsibility all together!

    I think this one had everyone fooled. I mean really - catastrophic flooding in Tennessee couldn't make it this far east?

    Yeah, well, I'm a little frustrated too, but I don't think Mr. Fishel is personally responsible for it not raining. :-) On the other hand, if he wants to come water my flowers, he's welcome to do so.
