over eastern duplin county, lenor county, a little southeast of there. these are really small, but they do have fairly intense coarse, so very brief heavy rain associated with a few of those. few of the skycams around the area, mainly in the triangle, where we've had fair skies this morning. just a few scattered high clouds. there are areas with more in the way of cloud cover. fayetteville looking a little gray this morning, where we had some areas of lower clouds, blocking the sun a little mo the triangle. we have temperatures, like 69 in durham. a couple degrees cooler in wake forest. in fayetteville, it's 74, same thing for clinton. we have about 75 for goldsboro. as cool as 64 in rocksboro, and 63 up around south hills. there are some areas that have gotten a little cooler during the night, and those are areas where the dew points have come down more behind the front. the front is sitting kind of over sooner parts of our viewing area now, and on

redeveloping, mainly around fayetteville to goldsboro and points south and southeast. overnight tonight, fair to partly cloudy, a very slightly chance of a shower. may be overdoing that a bit. tomorrow we see again a mix of sun more to the north, more clouds to the south, and the southern 3rd or so of the state seeing at least a shot of a stray shower or storm. should be about 80 at lunch time today, 86 at 4:00, falling into the upper 70s by 8 p.m. later tonight, a low of tomorrow's high 88. wednesday a lot of sun, up to around 90 degrees. around 90 on thursday as well. another front edging in that could trigger off scattered showers and thunderstorms. not a guarantee of rain for all of us. a little cooler behind that front on friday, probably drive in a high near 84. turn it over to brian now, who will get us caught up on how things are going on the roads. >> you can get caught in slow- going traffic on the freeways around the triangle.
