Chilly rain Tuesday afternoon, tapers off Wednesday morning


Rain arrives this afternoon, early evening and sticks around through early Wednesday.

Due to the clouds and rain, we likely already reached our highs today at midnight as temperatures will struggle to return to the upper 50s for most locations this afternoon.

As skies clear, strong northerly winds will keep highs locked into the middle 50s for Wednesday. We return to lots of sunshine and warming temperatures starting on Thursday as highs return to the 60s. We reach the 70s as we head into Sunday.

We remain dry after Wednesday until Sunday when a shower or two may fire as a weak cold front moves through the area. We will then keep small rain chances around each day as a series of systems moves across the area.


TODAY: Cloudy with rain showers arriving through the afternoon and evening hours. Highs in the upper 50s to near 60 with east winds at 8 to 15 mph.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with rain. Rain could be heavy at times, especially in the Sandhills. Lows in the middle 40s with north winds at 6 to 12 mph.

TOMORROW: Rain showers in the morning then slowly decreasing clouds through the day. Highs in the middle 50s with north winds at 10 to 20 mph.
