Cold front will bring rain to Triangle on Thursday

From staff reportsMay 14, 2014 

— No need to water the garden Thursday; nature has you covered on that.

The forecast for the daytime has rain chances ranging from 80 percent in the western part of the Triangle through 50 percent in the east as a cold front works its way through the region.

By Thursday night, that process is supposed to be finished, the National Weather Service said, and there is a 100 percent chance of rain forecast everywhere.

The frontal passage could create “strong to severe” thunderstorms, and some of those might spawn tornadoes, forecasters said.

That risk is greatest east of U.S. 1, they said.

Friday rain chances range from 60 percent in the east to 40 percent in the west as the system moves away from the Triangle.
