This is a weekend where you'll want to plan something indoors and outdoors. After rainy days Thursday and Friday, a lot of folks have cabin fever and may want to get out a little bit this weekend. The rain is going to stick around, however, and we're in for some rough weather Saturday, so planning an outing will take some creativity.
A warm front crosses the state Friday night bringing showers but we should see a lull in the action on Saturday morning. On Saturday afternoon we could have our first round of severe weather this season. Ahead of a cold front the atmosphere will be quite unstable on Saturday afternoon and evening and conditions are shaping up to be right for damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes. We may have another round of severe weather overnight Saturday night and early Sunday morning as the actual front crosses the state from west to east. The entire state will be affected this weekend so there won't be any place to go to "escape" the weather.
What to Do
Because of the messy weather, I'd probably choose to stick close to home this weekend.
One of my favorite spots for "iffy" weather is Durham's Museum of Life and Science. They have fantastic exhibits inside, if you get caught in a shower, but outside they have animal exhibits, a train and section called "Capture the Wind" where you can pilot your own remote controlled sailboat or drop over-sized seeds from 30 feet in the air.
