Raleigh, N.C. — The Triangle could see some stormy weather Friday night as a strong cold front moves through the area that could bring drenching rains and gusty winds.
Several North Carolina counties, including Halifax, Edgecombe and Randolph, were under a flood watch or flood advisory issued by the National Weather Service as the storm system approaches. WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said the Triangle could see rough weather into the evening hours.
“Everyone needs to have our WRAL weather app because there is the possibility of strong weather,” Wilmoth said at 3 p.m. “The rough weather will likely be between now and anywhere from 10 to 11 o’clock tonight.”
Wilmoth said the storm could bring heavy rain, gusty winds and isolated tornadoes to the region.
The storms are the result of warm air over North Carolina that is expected to clash with a blast of frigid air moving in from the west. Much of the Triangle saw rain Friday, and that wet weather was expected to extend into the evening.
