Scattered showers and storms this weekend

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) —After a wet start to the weekend for some in central North Carolina, additional showers and storms are possible Saturday and Sunday as a cold front approaches the state.  Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s across central North Carolina this weekend with scattered showers and storms likely.

That front will stall close by, becoming more stationary on Monday and Tuesday so more showers and storms will be possible.

By Wednesday, slightly drier air is expected, but a shower or storm will be possible.  There will only be a slight chance of a shower or storm on Thursday and Friday as highs reach back into the upper 80s.7DAY_WP_FULL
