    Hourly Forecast »

    Cloudy in the morning with rain likely and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm as the remnants of Zeta travel northwest of the area. Rain chances will be highest in our northern counties where some of the rain could be heavy. Once you get to the Triangle and points southward the rain will be scattered. Highs in the mid 70s-lower 80s. We do expect some strong, gusty winds especially mid morning through mid afternoon with gusts reaching 40-50 mph at their peak. These kind of winds will toss around loose articles and cause some trees to possibly topple. Expect the possibility of power outages with the passage of this system. We are also under a level one risk for severe storms with the potential for isolated tornadoes. That threat could persist into the evening hours.

    Mostly cloudy skies with a chance for showers and storms this evening and early into the overnight. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts and perhaps an isolated tornado. The winds from earlier today should not be an issue this evening with winds from the southwest at 10-15 mph. Lows in the morning should be in the 50s as a cold front passes overnight. The threat for the showers and some storms this evening will range from 9PM through 2AM with the showers exiting the eastern part of the viewing area around 2AM.
