DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) —
Get ready for a soggy Friday, and showers throughout the weekend.
An area of low pressure to the west will track across the Carolinas starting Friday. Widespread heavy rain will push into the area late Friday morning and stick around for the remainder of the day.
A few rumbles of thunder are also possible in the Sandhills. There’s also a very low risk for an isolated strong storm in Sandhills on Friday afternoon.
We’ll see rain over the next 3 days. Most of the rain will fall Friday. pic.twitter.com/tV8j9V2iQp

Rain chances will be highest Friday, but this slow-moving system will still bring off and showers throughout the weekend.
Flash flooding is possible because of heavy downpours combined with melting snow. From 1-3 inches of rain could fall through Sunday. There’s a flash flood watch in effect for the entire area through Saturday.
High pressure will settle in early next week, drying things out.
