First Warning Forecast

SEVERE STORMS: A potential for severe thunderstorms is possible later today into early evening. The main threat is for damaging wind gusts, but hail and tornadoes are additional threats with the main line closer to dinner time. The severity of the system is a level 3 of 5 with five being the highest potential for severe storms. Coastal North Carolina remains in a level 2, with one or two storms capable of becoming strong to severe.

Happening this morning, warm and foggy with low visibility across the area and round one of storms with heavy rain, small hail and strong winds. Expect highs in the low 80s with partly cloudy skies ahead of the main line of storms along with windy conditions from the southwest at 15-25 and gusts of 35-40 mph. The system is a quick mover, which means sunny skies and much cooler temperatures before you know it. 50s and 60s for Monday and Tuesday.
