— A wet weekend is on the way as a powerful line of thunderstorms moves eastward across the country. The storms could end up on North Carolina's doorstep on Friday.

"(We're going to see) more clouds, humidity, showers and thunderstorms," said WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner. "Yet another (storm) rolls in Sunday. That one may be our biggest rain producer of the next five days."

Thursday will have mostly cloudy skies with a small chance of rain. Highs will be in the lower 80s.

Friday will be variably cloudy with some afternoon/evening storms. A cold front approaches from the west and could spark showers and storms mainly from the Triangle area westward.

Showers and storms are possible Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

"We're not going to see our heat increasing a lot," Gardner said.
