Much-needed rain to move in Friday evening

— Hit-and-miss showers will move through the Triangle on Friday evening as many parts of North Carolina are seeing drought conditions.

There’s a 30% chance for rain Friday as winds from the east push moisture into the area.

A cold front has passed through, but it could drift north as a warm front. That would help trigger showers, WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell said.

While Friday morning will be dry, cloud coverage will increase around lunchtime.

Areas south of the Triangle could see showers during the evening commute, Campbell said, while the Triangle is most likely to see rain after 7 p.m.

The rain chances aren’t worth canceling plans to attend Wide Open Bluegrass or local football games, Campbell said.

“Not everyone will see rain today by any means,” she said.

Friday’s high will be 86 degrees.

Saturday will be partly cloudy, with the best chance of rain northwest of the Triangle.

Temperatures will reach 88 degrees on Saturday and 92 degrees on Sunday, near the record high.
