Much needed rain across North Carolina today may help many yards which have been brown for quite some time to turn back toward green. However, the rain has shown first signs it is leaving the region for the next few days. Wednesday's weather should feature only the slightest chance for storms in the mountains, with more tranquil conditions in the Piedmont. - Forecasters Ryan K. and Drew D.
