Cold front moving in, bringing rain and storms

March 15, 2019

Rain is moving in to the Triangle on Friday, bringing a risk for severe storms.

Rain could impact both the morning and evening commutes, meteorologist Kat Campbell said, but the evening is expected to have messier conditions.

“That’s when we could see the downpours and some of the stronger thunderstorms roll through,” Campbell said.

The day started mild, with temperatures in the 60s and some areas seeing spotty showers.

Temperatures will warm up to the mid-to-high 70s this afternoon.

There’s a low risk for severe storms this afternoon and evening, with a chance of damaging winds and lightning. That system is expected to move in between 3 and 4 p.m.

Rain will move out by 10 p.m., leaving the weekend dry.

“We get the rain out of the way today,” Campbell said.

A cold front is pushing in those rainy systems, and temperatures will drop overnight Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 50s.

Those highs will stick around next week, with lows in the 30s.
