STORMTRACK 3: Severe weather signals a return to winter
SOUTHEASTERN NC (WWAY)– A strong cold front produced a line of severe thunderstorms across eastern North Carolina Wednesday evening. Storm winds in excess of 45 mph brought down trees in several counties, including Bladen and Robeson. Spotty power outages were reported all the way to the coast. Rain transitioned into snowfall in the North Carolina mountains, where an inch is possible in higher elevations.
The threat of severe weather will diminish later Wednesday night as the cold front slides offshore. Temperatures will drop quickly behind the front, with highs in the 50’s and lows in the 30’s for the rest of the week.
