Most of the day Saturday shaped up to be a nice one. However, we did have a few showers around daybreak and some strong storms toward the evening hours. A few of those strong storms became severe producing some hail across the region. Above, you'll see some of the photos our viewers sent to As always, thanks to everyone for sending us your storm reports. In addition to hail reports, one viewer near Holly Springs in Wake County reported a wind gust around 45mph from storms that moved through southern Wake County.

Things should quiet down during the early morning hours on Sunday. We can look forward to a pleasant end to the weekend. Highs should reach the mid 80s during the afternoon.
