You may have to dodge some wet weather this weekend, but the good news is it won't be a total washout.

WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said there is a 30 percent chance of widely scattered rain on Saturday in the Triangle, parts of which saw overnight and early morning precipitation.

"A lot of it is moving out to the north and east but showers and thunderstorms could become a little more likely late in the day," Moss said, adding that the chance of rain goes up on Sunday. "There's a better chance of showers and thunderstorms tomorrow than today."

The Triangle is under a Level One risk of severe thunderstorms that could materialize in the region, while western parts of North Carolina were under a Level 2 risk, which carries a risk of hail, gusty winds and strong downpours, Moss said.
