TS Karen remnants to linger bringing more rain

Despite the cold front that dropped about an inch of rain across central North Carolina Monday slipping off the coast, the remnant circulation associated with Tropical Storm Karen is moving in close behind.

The aforementioned area of low pressure from the Gulf of Mexico will stall out just offshore of the coast Tuesday, Wednesday and into Thursday, which will mean areas from I-95 east will be at the greatest risk for some periods of rain, according to ABC11 Meteorologist Don "Big Weather" Schwenneker.

Schwenneker says the corridor just west of I-95, including the Raleigh-Durham area, will remain rather cloudy through at least Thursday with the opportunity for a little rain and drizzle from time to time.

"The best opportunity for precipitation to get west of I-95 in North Carolina will be tonight into Wednesday," he said.

As we move toward Friday, the area of low pressure lurking just offshore will finally push northward up the mid-Atlantic coast.
