Wet Again!

Rainfall totals through 5pm on Tuesday were highest from the Triangle to the Triad. Greensboro measured .092", while RDU gained 0.89" to its monthly total. While Fayetteville and Lumberton had 0.57" and 0.13" respectively, the Sandhills should see higher totals Wednesday.

This evening we are monitoring strong to severe storm across the Deep South. Parts of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina are under a Tornado Watch until 11pm. A thunderstorm risk is possible in North Carolina from Wednesday morning through Wednesday afternoon, but severe storms appear to be limited as most of the dynamics losing steam late Tuesday night.
As the cold front passes, winds will shift to the Northwest and colder air is due to arrive as we make it to Thursday. NW winds will increase to 20-30 mph during the day on Thursday. By Friday lows drop back into the 20s while highs struggle to reach the 50s.
