Rain chances stick around for the weekend

16798845_G Rain chances stick around for the weekend
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) –Shower and storm chances will continue into this weekend but it won’t be a total washout.

A flash flood watch remains in effect until Midnight for parts of the northern Upstate mountains into the high mountains of western NC. These areas have seen some of the highest rain totals over the last two days, and accordingly, the flash flood potential is highest there.

A Flood Warning is in place until 2:15PM for Buncombe, Henderson, Polk, and Rutherford counties. A flood warning is in effect for McDowell County until 4:15 PM.

Today brings another repeat of the forecast – around a 50% chance of a shower or storm at just about any time of the day, though the afternoon will see the greatest coverage of scattered storms. Expect highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Sunday might bring slightly lower rain chances to the region as highs inch toward the mid 80s for some.

Unsettled weather sticks around into next week – each day will have a chance of scattered showers and storms with highs in the upper 70s to low/mid 80s.

Heavier rain on way, will drench central NC through Tuesday

Scattered showers that moved into central North Carolina Monday afternoon will increase in intensity overnight and linger as unsettled weather into Tuesday morning, WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.

A large system of low pressure will be getting closer to the Triangle Tuesday, and with that comes heavier rainfall.

No severe weather is in the forecast, Wilmoth said, “But we could have some really heavy rain for that Tuesday morning commute.”

“Plan for some extra time. It’s going to be a mess out there tomorrow morning,” Wilmoth said. “It’s going to be a messy start to the day.

Winds may gust up to 30 or 40 mph in some places.

Raleigh could see 1 to 2 inches of rain by time the system moves out, Wilmoth said.

Tuesday will again be cloudy and blustery. Some may hear a rumble or two of thunder.

By Wednesday, the rain chances decrease, although not all the way to zero.

“From Wednesday on, rain will be intermittent. We’re looking at a pretty soggy couple of days,” WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

High temperatures vary little, just above or below the 70-degree mark, and overnight lows dips into the high-40s.

Warmer days and more sun are on tap for the coming weekend.

Warm but wet weekend ahead

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — February returned to central North Carolina on Thursday and last night…at least February temperatures did. Warmer weather will creep back in starting this afternoon, a trend that will continue this weekend when we will be close to 70 by Sunday. This weekend will also have rain returning to central North Carolina, with off-and-on showers both Saturday and Sunday.

While the rain this weekend is not expected to be severe, it could amount to 1-2 inches by the time the heaviest rain moves out on Monday. The rain is not expected to be severe or cause widespread flooding, but there won’t be a lot of dry time either day.

Rain chances will continue into next week as a cold front cools temperatures off Tuesday before warmer weather jumps back in Wednesday and Thursday.

RAIN, THUNDERSTORMS, AND CHANCES OF SNOW OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS

By KC Sherman  |  January 11, 2018 @6:19 AM
After another day in the 60s for many across the Piedmont Wednesday, temperatures will continue to stay warm through this work week as a cold front approaches from the west, bringing rain and a chance for thunderstorms before cooler and drier air follows for the weekend into early next week.

Moisture streaming in from the south and east today will allow for light showers early in the mountains and foothills before rain becomes more widespread by this afternoon. Despite the cloud cover today, daytime highs will be topping off the in the 50s to 60s. A heavier, steady rain is expected this evening into the early overnight hours, particularly for the mountains and foothills, before becoming more intermittent and showery by Friday morning.

After Friday morning’s “lull” in major activity, things will pick right back up by Friday afternoon. The aforementioned cold front will begin moving through by late in the day Friday, bringing a heavier line of rain through the region, where a few weak thunderstorms can’t be ruled out across lower elevations.

Behind the front, cool air will follow, allowing for a few light snow showers in the mountains early Saturday morning. Dry and chilly conditions will resume this weekend into early next work week with another shot of cold air expected for late in next week.
