The balance of today will be cloudy with off and on showers and temperatures peaking in the upper 60s or lower 70s this afternoon.
A warm front, still located near the Alabama-Georgia state line very early today, will trigger some additional showers and thunderstorms by early this afternoon. The focal point of most of this activity will be over Georgia and South Carolina.
Meanwhile, in a more stable environment located to the north and east, we are expecting some rain to get underway. This rain will soak most of the Triangle, especially later today and this evening. The main thrust of heavy and gusty thunderstorms will slide by well to the south, and will impact the Sandhills with the best chance for severe storms.
While you were sleeping the @NWSSPC updated the severe weather outlook for today (Thursday). They pushed the highest risk to the the south of us. Most of the Triangle out of the risk, and the Sandhills in a Cat 2 of 5. Biggest threats=damaging winds and/or hail. #ncwx pic.twitter.com/VbEDnjpIRy

Much of central North Carolina is in line for picking up a decent soaking, getting a general 0.50-1.00 inch of rain through midnight.
Tomorrow is shaping up to be a much better day. Some drier air will filter into the region from the north and west, and sunshine will return. It will also be warmer, with most temperatures reaching the mid- and upper 70s. The weekend does get off to a dry start.
