Showers and thunderstorms brought heavy rainfall and frequent lightning to some areas on Wednesday and another round of storms is on the way for today.

After a mostly dry morning, scattered showers and storms will develop this afternoon. As they develop, they'll form a line and begin moving southeast across the Triangle into the Sandhills.

There is a level one or two out of five risk for severe weather across the area for a potential for damaging winds with this line of storms. 

Temperatures will peak in the lower to middle 90s at the warmest point of the day if the rain doesn't reach us first. Showers and storms will make for cloudy skies for much of the area in the afternoon and evening with lingering showers and storms into tonight.

We'll see temperatures fall to the lower 70s by sunrise Friday.

Another round of scattered storms is forecast for Friday with rain chances continuing into the weekend. Rainfall totals of one to three inches are possible from today through Saturday, so be on the lookout for localized flash flooding from these storms as well.
