Raleigh, N.C. — Some areas of North Carolina could see a round of showers and storms on Wednesday afternoon.
The best chance for rain will be over the coastal plain, east of Interstate 95, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. Isolated storms could pop up west of I-95. In the evening, spotty storms could develop.
Highs for Tuesday are expected to reach the lower 90s.
On Tuesday, a batch of thunderstorms moving in from the western part of the state prompted the National Weather Service to issue a severe thunderstorm watch for much of central North Carolina.
Storms knocked out power to homes in the area of Liberty Street and Alston Avenue in Durham just before 11 p.m.
