And this was the scene around the Triad about the same time --
A well developed storm system, part of which produced blizzard conditions in Colorado, is making its move across the southeast. Doppler radar from midday showed widespread rain across the Carolinas, Georgia, and Alabama.
This will keep rain around central North Carolina tonight. In fact, the rain may pick up through the evening as the area of low pressure tracks closer to the state.
While we are starting the weekend on the soggy side, most of the weekend should be pleasant. The rain will finally come to an end early Saturday morning. With clearing through the day Saturday, we'll see a lot of sun in the afternoon.
