Storm damage was reported in Carthage, Cary and Seminole. Progress Energy was also reporting 4,746 power outages in the Cary area. In Moore County, 375 people were without power.
While that patch of severe weather moved pass the Triangle, another disturbance was moving southwest to northeast into the area late Tuesday, bringing a better chance of scattered showers and storms, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said.
"Wednesday will be different than Tuesday in that it will be mostly cloudy, and cooler, with more rain," Maze said.
Highs are expected in the mid to upper 80s Wednesday, Maze added.
Thursday will be sunnier and temperatures should climb back into the 90s. A chance of rain does exist each afternoon.
"We’ve got a chance for thunderstorms every afternoon this week," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "If you can hear the thunder, you are in danger of being struck by lightning. It can strike 10 miles away from the cloud that forms it."
