— Happy Friday! The weekend is finally here.

The Top 5 Things you need to know heading into this weekend:

1. It will be wet. WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner says your umbrella will come in handy so keep it near. Tropical moisture will mean more off-and-on showers for much of the Triangle.

2. Prince Charles will walk his soon-to-be daughter-in-law down the aisle during Saturday's Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The bride's father has been in the news after a health scare and a scandal involving some paparazzi photos.

3. A suspect is in custody after shots were fired near President Donald Trump's South Florida golf resort. No motive for the shooting has been publicly disclosed.

4. Apple is coming! Or maybe it isn't. Either way, local tech firms are speaking out about how the software giant's possible move to the Triangle could affect companies already in central North Carolina.

5. Moogfest is definitely coming to the Triangle.The lineup for this year's Moogfest includes a member of the band Limp Bizkit, two shows from Mouse on Mars, a 360-degree audio cube and an art installation from R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe.
