— While central North Carolina largely escaped the heavy downpours associated with Subtropical Storm Alberto, that doesn't mean clear skies are in the forecast anytime soon. Every day of the next four shows at least a chance for thunderstorms in the hottest part of the day.

For Tuesday night, scattered showers could come together for some heavier rain around sunset. Then the rain chances ease up a bit overnight – to only 40 percent – before surging again for the daylight hours.

At any given time across the Triangle, it could be rainy, people could hear a rumble of thunder, or you could get a rare peek of sun shining through.

That pattern repeats on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with high temperatures in the mid-80s and a steady 60 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms.

The clouds ease out over the weekend, leaving only a partly cloudy outlook but without the rain.
