Saturday -- Midday Update

The same storm system that produced severe weather over the south-central United States on Friday is now marching across the southeast. The above image from the Storm Prediction Center shows the severe weather reports received Friday. The green dots represent reports of large hail, the blue dots represent wind damage reports, and the red dots indicate tornado reports.

Severe weather is likely today in Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, and that threat could shift into the Carolinas tonight. The Storm Prediction Center has placed an area from the Gulf Coast into South Carolina under a "moderate risk" for severe weather. Central and eastern North Carolina is now under a "slight risk" for severe weather.
While the greatest threat for severe storms will remain to our south, we cannot not rule out a few strong to severe storms overnight. Some of the strongest storms in our area could occur while most people are asleep. Make sure your weather radio is on standby mode tonight just in case severe weather develops. Also, stay tuned to News 14 Carolina. We'll have Weather on the Ones updates through the night. You can also find updated radar views on and we'll have occasional updates here on on Weather on the Ones blog.
