Active Weather Expected for Saturday statewide.

Saturday Forecast: It seems everyone has plans that involve outdoor activities on Saturday. Unfortunately, it'll not be completely dry. We can expect periods of showers and thunderstorms on and off statewide, but there will also be long periods of dry time. Here's how I see Saturday playing out.

Saturday morning, scattered showers and even a thunderstorm will be possible hit or miss across the state the highest morning coverage will be across Eastern/Central NC.

Saturday afternoon, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop across the western part of the state and move east, with storms developing at any point throughout the afternoon across the state. We can't really say exactly at what point and time a storm will hit your location, but the bottom line is scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are likely statewide Saturday afternoon and evening.

Severe Weather: A few strong to severe storms are possible statewide; the threat appears higher level 2/5 risk from Raleigh and points east. However, regardless of where you're located in North Carolina, there is a low-end risk of a strong to severe storm. A few isolated storms could be severe with damaging winds, the tornado threat is very low, but an isolated tornado can't be completely ruled out mainly along the Cape Fear Region.

The severe weather threat is very fluid and subject to change over the next 12 hours, so will be monitoring the progress. I don't think the threat will be as widespread as the past few events.

The Bottom Line: On Saturday be prepared for a passing shower/storm at any point during the day, it'll not be a washout anywhere; there will be lots of dry time.

I'll be monitoring and have you covered all day on the changing weather conditions!
