Storms are possible tonight and Wednesday, and some severe

 ⛈️ Update: Good evening, all; I am providing another update about the storm risk tonight into Wednesday. There seems to be mass confusion about the storm threat; the entire state is under a level 2/5 risk of Severe Weather tonight for Western areas and tomorrow for Central and Eastern areas. I have combined the Storm Prediction Center outlook to make everyone understand the risk. Late tonight through Wednesday, a broken line of showers and thunderstorms will move across the state from west to east. These storms may produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds. Although the risk of severe weather is low, there is a possibility of a few strong to severe storms tonight and tomorrow.

⏰ The threat is expected to be from 11 PM to 3 AM for the western part of the state and from 4 AM to 2 PM for Central and Eastern NC. Timeline on the map below!

⚠️ A few strong to severe storms may occur, with possible damage from high winds and large hail. While the risk of tornadoes is low, there is a chance of an isolated tornado. The main risk of a low tornado chance will be on Wednesday morning from 8 AM to 2 PM, mostly east of Raleigh. The Storm Prediction Center has placed a level 2 risk for most of NC to account for the low risk of a severe storm.


👀 Bottom Line: A dynamic storm system will move through the state from tonight through Wednesday, bringing a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Not everyone will experience these storms, but those who do should stay weather aware in case a storm becomes strong to severe through early Wednesday afternoon. The storms will end from west to east through the morning and afternoon, with gusty winds likely to follow through Friday.
