RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The CBS 17 Storm Team Alert continues for Wednesday night as a few stronger storms remain possible.
The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center now has most of central North Carolina in the Marginal Risk (1 out of 5) for a stronger storm, with the Slight Risk (and higher chance) of a severe storm to our west.
Main threats continue to be damaging straight-line winds, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Any heavy rain could produce localized flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas.
This is the same storm system that produced destructive and damaging tornadoes across the deep south, though the threat is not as high in central North Carolina as it was there.
Make sure you have a way to get weather alerts to your phone and watch the CBS 17 Storm Team for updates.
