RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The streak of 90 degree days will continue into the work work, but rain chances go up for the second half of the weekend.  Saturday brought central North Carolina the tenth day in a row with highs in the 90s and there’s still a few more to go before we might cool into the 80s.

The weekend, however, will end with better rain chances.  The high in the Triangle on Saturday was 95 while Fayetteville made it up to 101.  The normal high this time of year is 90 and we should stay above that until at least mid week.

A couple of storms will hold on into Saturday evening but, severe weather is not expected. The overnight low will be 74 with a rain risk of 30 percent.

Sunday will be partly to mostly cloudy and hot with a few PM showers and storms possible. The high will be 93. Winds will be southwest 5 to 10 mph.  The rain risk will be 40 percent.

Sunday Night will be mostly cloudy with a few evening showers and storms. The overnight low will be 73. Winds will be southwest around 5 mph.  The rain risk will be 40 percent.
