More rain is on the way to eastern North Carolina. A developing area of low pressure in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico will move northeast along the coast late tonight and early Wednesday. In addition, a strong cold front will push into the area Wednesday afternoon before finally clearing our skies by Thursday and the weekend. Total rainfall is expected to average around 1 inch with locally heavier amounts. We could see some strong or possibly severe thunderstorms late tonight and early Wednesday.
