— A cold front stalled to the south of the Triangle is expected to yield clouds and showers Wednesday.

Wednesday’s temperatures will top out near 70 and clouds could linger through the work week, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.

The front, moving north to south, is expected to cross the Triangle Tuesday evening, bringing abundant wind and significantly cooler temperatures.

“Tonight, some thunderstorms will be rumbling in,” Maze said. “A cloud mass and rain will arrive here this evening.”

Some counties north of the Triangle could see storms as early as 6 p.m., he predicted. The remainder of the area will see spotty showers and storms later in the evening.

Tuesday reigned as the year's hottest day so far, with temperatures reaching the high 80s to low 90s across the Triangle.
