ALERT DAY: Rain still likely despite diminished severe weather threat

Alert Day

Despite sunshine so far today, keep an umbrella ready and an eye to the sky as rain develops heading into this afternoon and becomes likely tonight.

While the severe threat is lower across central North Carolina, a few stronger storms may develop along the I-95 corridor tonight.

The SPC has removed most of central North Carolina from their severe weather outlook. Those along and east of I-95 have the highest chance of seeing a stronger storm. Our far eastern counties are now in the Marginal Risk (1 on the 1 to 5 scale) for a stronger storm. The main concern is damaging wind.

The Slight Risk (2 on the 1 to 5 scale) is now situated closer to the coasts of North and South Carolina. The timing for any severe weather will be 11 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. on Friday.

Behind the front, a couple lingering showers will be possible Friday morning, then some sunshine will filter in with the clouds during the afternoon.

Saturday will partly cloudy and quite cool, but by Halloween it will be sunny and highs will be around normal in the upper 60s.
