Raleigh, N.C. — After another day of scattered showers, Thursday's overnight hours should be free of rain, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.
"Tomorrow morning we wake up to partly cloudy skies to mostly cloudy skies," Maze said. "That will be a nice change."
Friday will be another hot, muggy day.
Temperatures will top out in the 90s on Friday afternoon as pesky rain returns.
"The better part of the day will be hot and dry before storms blow through," Maze said. "There's the potential some of those (storms) could be strong."
This weekend brings another chance of storms, but the 40-percent chance on Saturday drops to a 20-percent chance on Sunday.
"Next week will be our break," Maze said. "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday looks like comfortable weather, low humidity and at this point, (the days) look dry."
