Thursday could bring more scattered showers, according to WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze.
The rainy week is caused by the remnants of Alberto, which made landfall in Florida on Monday as a subtropical storm and is moving northward into Illinois and Indiana on Wednesday. Alberto is bringing significant rain to the mountains, Maze said.
The North Carolina mountains will see the downpours and heavy rain continue.
"Their flash flood watches and warnings will continue through Thursday morning," he said. "Our rain activity here should die down by around 9 p.m."
Thursday will be mostly cloudy with scattered afternoon storms. Highs will be in the mid-to-upper 80s.
"We should wake up to either mostly cloudy skies or complete overcast," Maze said. "But there will be peeks of sunshine and showers and storms will be possible once again."
Afternoon showers are possible again Friday with highs reaching the 90s.
The air will be sticky and humid for the remainder of the week, with highs in the mid 80s.
"Keep the umbrella handy tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and Sunday," Maze said.
The on-and-off-again wet weather will continue into the weekend, although next week should have a chance at less-humid, more sunny weather. Temperatures will be steamy with highs in the high 80s and low 90s.
