Some locations in the News 14 Carolina viewing area can expect a wet start to the weekend. Scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed this afternoon across the state. The atmosphere over the region is fairly moist and a bit unstable. That means some of the storms could produce localized heavy downpours. There is also the possibility that a few storms may become strong at times.
The showers and storms are developing ahead of an approaching cold front. That front will move through North Carolina slower that first anticipated. That will keep showers and even a few thunderstorms in the forecast through at least the first half of Saturday. The rain will end west to east across our area. Many of us should see some sunshine by the afternoon hours.
