Raleigh, N.C. — After two sweltering days, the Triangle could see some rain Wednesday, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.
Tuesday was a repeat of Monday's high humidity and stifling temperatures, with a heat index over 100 degrees.
There is a chance for hit-and-miss storms into the evening, Maze said, putting the likelihood of showers at about 30 percent.
"Tomorrow should be a cooler day, a cloudier day and we have a much greater chance that we'll get wet," he said.
The forecast high temperature Wednesday is in the upper 80s.
"We have a weak cold front slipping toward the area (Wednesday) which should prompt the development of some showers and storms," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "Some may move along slowly with locally heavy downpours."
