Slight Risk for Severe Storms Monday

The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of central and eastern North Carolina under the slight risk for severe weather on Monday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Sunday night, but the chance for stronger storms appears a little greater for Monday.

We expect the clouds to break some during the day Monday allowing sunshine to warm temperatures into the mid 70s adding instability to the atmosphere. That instability acts as fuel for thunderstorms. While scattered showers and storms are possible during the day, the chance appears higher for stronger storms in the afternoon. The threat from these strong to severe storms will include large hail, damaging winds, and frequent lightning.

Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina and for the latest updates...
