Severe weather could linger into evening
Most of the severe weather has passed through but some storms could linger into the evening.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A cold front moved through the Triangle on Saturday, bringing with it showers and thunderstorms.

Just south of Robeson County, a tornado warning was issued at 5:12 p.m. but ended at 5:45 p.m. without incident.

The storms, mainly in the afternoon and evening brought some heavy rain and hail in some areas.

In Cumberland County, one lane of I-95 North was closed for hours about a mile before Exit 65 (NC 82) because of flooding.

We're likely to be looking at some impressive rainfall rates again and this month's trend of feast or famine in terms of rainfall should continue.

The rain pulled eastward by the evening, leaving clearing skies and a cooler, drier night.
