It has been another fairly active weather day across parts of central North Carolina this Thursday. The strongest storms this afternoon were located over the Sandhills. We received a few reports of downed trees and some minor flooding around Fayetteville. Doppler radar estimates showed as much as 1 to 3 inches of rain fell over portions of Cumberland County.
We may see a repeat of Wednesday and Thursday for Friday. Quiet weather conditions are in the forecast through Friday morning. As afternoon highs soar toward the mid 90s, scattered thunderstorms could again develop. Some of those storms will have the potential to produce gusty winds, heavy rains, and frequent lightning.
The showers and storms will likely be more numerous for Saturday and Sunday as a cold front drops toward North Carolina for the weekend. Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina. We'll be here with updates every 10 minutes.
