— Rain began filtering in after lunchtime Tuesday afternoon but should leave the area quickly, according to WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.

Showers will be possible across the Triangle between noon and 4 p.m., Gardner said. It was a chilly morning in Raleigh, with temperatures in the low 30s, but warmed up to the upper 40's by afternoon.
