— Wednesday started off warm and muggy and will continue with sporadic showers throughout the day, according to WRAL Meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner.

"The rain may pick up tonight," she said.

Wednesday's highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

A cold front moving in from the north will prompt the development of a few scattered showers at times.

The front will usher in an air mass that will make the Triangle a little cooler in the coming days.

Thursday should drop into the 70s. The best chance of showers that day will likely be over the Piedmont and Sandhills with spotty coverage for the coastal plain.

The remainder of the week should be cloudy with highs in the upper 70s.
