Thursday's Storm Threat

Today we're watching a potent spring storm system marching across Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky. A severe weather outbreak is expected through the day in that part of the country with tornadoes likely. That same storm system will move across the Carolinas late Wednesday night through Thursday.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of central and eastern North Carolina under a slight risk for severe weather Thursday -
A line of storms is expected to move through the Triad and Charlotte areas early Thursday morning possibly before daybreak. The storms will approach the Triangle and Sandhills from the morning commute through midday and then move across eastern North Carolina from late morning through afternoon. The greatest threat from any strong storms will come from damaging straight line winds, but a few isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
