radar composite over the past two hours. these showers streaming in from south carolina this morning. but over the last hour we'll call it, those really beginning to break up. throughout the rest of the morning i think the showers are slowly going to taper off for us. but where they are falling now, well, obviously you want to take the umbrella, across central portions of cumberland county, a large portion of samson county seeing rain and towards wayne county. i'll bring to you a closer look at samson county. along clinton, off towards i- 40, you can see i-95 in cumberland county, that is also seeing some very light rain this morning. watch for wet roads. if you're driving around cumberland, samson counties this morning. all in all this shouldn't slow you down a lot but i'm expecting steadier rain later this afternoon and that could have a bigger impact on your drive home. here's what i'm thinking, for today, 35 degrees at 8:00 a.m. a few isolated showers, 38 at noon, 41 at lunchtime, the majority of us are going to be dry throughout the morning hours. you'll notice as the
best chance between 4:00 and say 6:00 this evening, our high this afternoon around 46 degrees. the setup for today, we had that cold front move through yesterday, we were talking about that, that is stalled off the east coast. areas of low pressure going to ride up along it, that will provide with us a good chance for afternoon showers later today. still going to be chilly for this time of year but don't worry, some warmer temperatures weekend ahead. let's map out the rain chances on your future forecast. majority of us dry at 7:00 a.m. through lunchtime i think the majority of us are dry as well. southern portions of cumberland and samson counties could start to see rain a little earlier. this is our in-house model. it keeps the majority of the rain east of our area. i wouldn't be surprised if the access of this rain moves a little further west, putting more of us under the threat of rain later this afternoon for the drive home. the good news, as quick as the rain moves out it's going to move out and skies will clear close to midnight.

even colder towards the virginia border, 26 in roxboro. 28 henderson. further south you go, well, milder because we're looking at cloudier skies. 41 in fayetteville and lillington. there's also a little bit of fog now being reported around henderson, advise i can't there at 3 miles -- visibility at 3 miles, 5 miles in roxboro. today, just a few showers this morning, mid-30s at 8:00 a.m. 41 at noon. then we're looking for a high of 46. when we reach that afternoon high that is when the better rain chances will be developing for us. i do think they will stay around for the evening drive home so that could take you a little bit longer this afternoon. i'll let you know when sunshine returns coming up in the complete forecast. time to check with traffic. seeing more cars. it's that time of morning. i-40 and fayetteville street. moving a little slower than when we checked in on it earlier. we also have an accident in northern portions of wake county. this is on breyer creek parkway and the intersection of lumlye

clouds and a little rain but it's better than that was. >> yes. and we're tracking sunshine for the weekend. so we just need to fast forward through today. 37 degrees, cloudy now. this is a live picture from our wncn tower cam. i have it turned looking to the east , it's just cloudy so not much sunrise to be seen on this early thursday morning. we're talking about the cloudy skies on the satellite and radar composite. not everyone waking up to wet weather. look at wayne county. you're really seeing steadier rain across portions of goldsboro and looks like down 117. that extends through the southern portions of wayne county out the other end as well so. mount olive, goldsboro seeing light rain. some of the showers really just kind of tapering off around the clinton area this morning. if you're stepping out the door make sure you take your umbrella, a few light showers this morning. i think better chances for rain
that could impact more of us. so 35 at 8:00 a.m. 41 at noon. most of us still on the dry side. showers mainly east of the triangle later this afternoon. 46 our afternoon high. back to 42, that evening drive home especially around the eastern half of our viewing area, could be a soggy one. here's the situation, we had a cold front move through yesterday. it's now stalled out off the east coast. this area of low pressure moving up along it will provide us that chance for afternoon showers. still on the chilly side, just get through today though and then that sunshine should return. so here's what i'm thinking -- 8:00 this morning, most of us on the dry but cloudy side. the clouds really not going anywhere, as we head throughout the day. this is 1:00 this afternoon. starting to see the showers in our southeastern-most communities. pretty much the areas that are seeing the rain now. sampson county, wayne county, cumberland county. those will continue as we head into the afternoon. now, this model keeps a lot of this rain to our east. i think a lot of it though will
in raleigh but certainly around that 95 corridor, i do think you'll see more in the way of wet weather this afternoon. 1:00 in the morning, as we head towards friday, all the rain is out, the skies are clearing, the clearing skies are going to tech around, paving the way for -- stick around paving the way for plenty of sunshine as we head into friday. 20s around the virginia border but 40s around the sand hills. this morning in raleigh, 37. 46 our afternoon high in raleigh. 45 durham. 48 fayetteville. then fast forward to tonight, with the clearing skies, it's going to be colder, temperatures should start off tomorrow morning near freezing. as we head into the afternoon the sunshine is here, 51 on friday. even warmer for saturday at 55. and then look at that, the 60s, sunday and monday and looks like groundhog day next tuesday 65. that is our next chance of a few showers. 6:50 on this thursday morning. let's switch gears and get to traffic. right now wade avenue and i-
slowdowns to report. if you're traveling on this, in this direction no problems. let's switch on over to the live drive conditions. we're tracking an accident earlier this morning, it looks like it's still an issue on aarondale avenue near zebulon. look for congestion in you're heading in that direction. 6:51. a raleigh man who beat stage 4 cancer now headed to super bowl 50 to hopefully see the carolina panthers beat the broncos. grant lefoun is getting an all expense paid trip to the bay area to watch his team in super bowl 50. the trip is made possible by the fill your bucket list foundation. a carey-based nonprofit that grants wishes to adults with cancer. he says he's taking his mom with him because she dropped everything in her life to take care of him when he was first diagnosed. >> i was pretty pumped at first.
