Clouds held temperatures in the low 70s through the day Friday in the Triangle, and rain is on the way, WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

There is a chance for showers through the evening, but the more widespread and heavier rain should come Saturday.

"It looks like monsoon city here on Saturday," Fishel said.

He adjusted his outlook for the weekend, though, noting that the heaviest of the rain should be confined to just one day.

"It looks a little more split," Fishel said, "with not as much rain on Sunday."

Clouds will dominate over central North Carolina Saturday with rain likely and heavy at times. The temperature is likely to be similar to Friday, with highs in the low 70s, about 15 degrees off the late-August norm.

The Triangle area could see 1-2 inches of rain, while area south and east of the Triangle may see more.
