Forecast Discussion

Low pressure is over the Ohio valley this morning and it's associated cold front will be the driving forces for our wet weather for the next few days. This particular front is slow moving, and should reach Central NC tomorrow morning. Once it arrives, it stalls over the center of the state and will remain there until another front, slated to arrive Friday, takes its place. However, this just means a continuation of the wet weather forecast, as there is still ample moisture and energy in the atmosphere. Meaning there's rain in the forecast for the foreseeable future.

Tomorrow is a preview of what's to come, as in the morning it will start out dry but end wet. Tuesday and Wednesday still look to be the wettest days as that's when the front will be fully stalled. Thereby generating the most amounts of rain for our area. Thursday through Saturday the rain will have less coverage than the previous days, but it's still in the forecast as the second cold front enters out area. Showers and possible thunderstorms will be centered around the afternoon and evening hours.
