Some areas had strong to severe storms as a low level disturbance made its way through North carolina last night. We had reports from viewers of hail and strong winds, especially in Wake county. Amy Barrington reported to us that in morrisville there was 'prolific hail, the size of cherries' while josh English e-mailed us to tell us that hail in Cary 'was quarter sized and came down solid for about 4-5 minutes.' We always welcome your weather reports and pictures! You can send those to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some of the weather photos sent in by our viewers:
Jeff from Carrboro showing that most of the hail in his backyard was nickel-sized from overnight storms.
Chapel Hill sent in her hail pictures....
Orange county was not the only location of hail-producing storms last night, as this viewer in Garner sent in this hail shot.
Calmer weather is in store for Saturday with partly to mostly sunny skies on Saturday. A stronger system will move toward North Carolina on Sunday. This system will at the least give us rain. At the most it could pose another severe weather threat. The forecast is not clear on the path of this system at this time. Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina throughout the weekend for updates on your weekend forecast.
Have a safe and pleasant weekend
