Raleigh, N.C. — Much of central North Carolina, from Greenville and the Interstate 95 corridor west through the Triangle and the Triad, is at a medium risk for flash flooding through Wednesday.
Rain chances will increase throughout the day Wednesday.
The morning will start out with a 30% chance of rain and then by afternoon will be up to 80%.
Rain chances will continue to stay high with a 50-60% chance for the evening.
WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said the rain could be heavy at times, especially in the afternoon and into the night.
“We could see up to two-and-a-half to three inches in some of the showers and possible thunderstorms,” added Maze. “We do have a really good chance to see some rain.”
Maze said areas in the medium flood risk could see up to three inches of rain on Wednesday.
“We’ll probably see some flood advisories, maybe a flash flood warning,” said Maze.
Thursday will be another rainy day, and through Friday, we could see up to 5 inches of rain.
Temperatures stay warm, though, with highs in the 70s and overnight lows in the 60s.
Friday brings fewer showers and the start of a few cooler days. The weekend also looks mild, with highs in the mid to upper 60s, although the rain chance lingers through Saturday.
