expecting more powerful storms as a result of el nio. steady rain fell on northern california as snow covered the sierra nevadas as the first of several storms made their way inland. heavy rains could cause flooding and other problems with heavy thunderstorms expected all weekend long. officials could release large amounts of water from the folsom dam to avoid flooding. that hasn't happened since 2011. aimee is back with us. we have our own round of showers. >> will be out of here by sun game. you have outdoor plans sunday. but the rain is moving in. we can show that you with radar. all these showers moving in from the west and moving to the east. all of is it light rain that's coming down. did it hamper some of the celebration activities after the ball game. a lot of folks started to clear
10:19 pm
started to come down. we'll start down in our southwestern communities. southern pines getting some light rain, heart net county get -- harnett county getting some light rain. also franklin county getting some rain. then as you head towards rocky mount and enfield, some rain there as well. as far as totals they have not been very impressive. less than a 10th of an inch where we have had the rainfall. this is a quick hitting system with some light rain. it will be out of here by tomorrow. a live look at our roxboro skycam. less than a 10th of an inch there. the road is wet there. temperatures at the airport in the 40s. rain at rdu. winds out of north at 5 miles per hour. 46 degrees in southern pines where it's raining right now. 48 degrees in erwin, 47 in rocky mount, so a little chilly outside. we had a lot of dry time today.

it wasn't until this evening that we started to see showers move in, around 6:00, 9:00. they will continue to move to the east very quick over the next couple of hours. we have an upper level disturbance that's going to sweep through the area. the center of the system is still out to the west. we still have the potential for spotty showers even though this main line is moving through. we still have some showers in western north carolina as well. over the next few hours some spotty showers will still be possible. but this entire thing moving east, that allows high pressure to move in. once this settles in, it just stays here. it will stay off the east coast. it will be warmer next week and dry. should be some really fabulous weather. temperatures are going to warm up pretty significantly. take a look at the rain overnight. some intermittent light rain. by 6:00 tomorrow morning perhaps a few lingering showers in our eastern county. we'll start to see clearing in
10:21 pm
i do think we'll see some sun as we get into the late afternoon hours. we'll see a little bit more of a brighter sky as we wrap up the day. for tonight spotty light rain, temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s. it will be chilly. it tomorrow our high will be in the 50s. so another cool dawith more clouds than sun to start, then a little bit more sun as we wrap up the weekend. for tomorrow, 57 degrees for the high after starting off at about 40 degrees. by 8:00, low 40s, lots of clouds. it by noon, partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures in the low 50s. in teaching we should have partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. monday is even warmer. 65 for the high. that high pressure system is going to warm us up and will be just off shore. winds flow clockwise around high pressure systems so we'll have a southerly flow. that will start the warming process. look at the temperatures. in the 70s by tuesday. wednesday 74. and then thursday 79 degrees
