Afternoon/Evening Thunderstorms

A few strong thunderstorms rumbled across parts of our region Thursday evening. The strongest storms affected areas mainly north of Raleigh. The National Weather Service passed along reports of downed trees in Warren and Franklin Counties in the News 14 Carolina viewing area. Flooding was even reported along Duke Street and Durham.

We could see another round of thunderstorms this Friday afternoon and evening. The storms should be scattered, so not everyone will see the rain. However, the strongest storms could again produce heavy downpours, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. We'll be keeping a close eye on Doppler radar through the afternoon and evening. As always, you can find the latest weather updates on News 14 Carolina every 10 minutes. No need to wait until the evening news at 5, 6, 10, or 11 tonight!

If storms move through your area and it's safe do so, we'd like to see any storm photos you may have to share. Send your weather photos to anytime. We'll share some of them right here on our weather blog.
