RALEIGH — Rain on Thursday will be less hit-or-miss than earlier in the week as a cold front drifts down across the state, the National Weather Service said.
The chance of rain for the afternoon and evening ranged from 40 percent in the western part of the Triangle to 60 percent in the south and east.
The storms could generate strong winds and perhaps hail, forecasters said.
“More people will see rain than the last couple of days,” ABC11 meteorologist Don Schwenneker said.
The rain was is expected to end overnight, and cooler, drier air should rule on Friday, the forecast said.
Saturday, the forecast showed rain expected over western North Carolina, and that “certainly is something to keep an eye on” for the Triangle, Schwenneker said.
