(NCNN WeatherCenter)–It’s a quiet Sunday morning, but we’re watching a cold front that could bring us more rain this afternoon.
Around 1 p.m., showers and thunderstorms will slowly start to pop up around the area. Some could pack a punch, and we’ll watch the possibility for flooding.
“We have the better chance of seeing numerous showers and thunderstorms as we head into 4 o’ clock,” said NC News Network meteorologist Peta Sheerwood. “Some pockets of those storms will have the potential of bringing heavy rainfall.”
Our rain chances will be high for the most of next week as tropical moisture comes our way. There’s a 60% chance of rain on Sunday and Monday.
A cold front will be moving in on Sunday, bringing temperatures in the 80s. This trend of cooler weather will continue throughout the week, according to NCNN meteorologist Zach Maloch.
Meteorologists are also tracking the remnants of Tropical Depression Fred, which is expected to regain tropical storm strength once it moves north of Cuba, bringing heavy rain to Florida his weekend and early next week.
The western portion of N.C. could see heavy rain Tuesday afternoon and evening. Anywhere between 4 to 6 inches of rain could come from the remnants of Fred.
“An east breeze is going to increase those rain totals in the mountains,” Maloch said.
