Showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast for some as much-needed rainfall moves in
Here we go; parts of the state finally have a decent shot of scattered showers and thunderstorms today. The rain is much needed as drought conditions continue to worsen but will not be drought-busting by any means. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible with a front as it moves through today; the best chance of rain will be mainly in areas west of I-95; storms look to weaken as they approach eastern NC today. A few storms are possible, though, to the east, severe weather is not expected. Localized heavy rainfall and gusty winds are possible.
