STORMTRACK 3: Big storm system brings lots of rain, wind
SOUTHEASTERN NC (WWAY) — A major storm system will provide much-needed rainfall this weekend, with around two inches possible in southeastern NC. Showers will develop late Saturday evening and continue throughout Saturday night and all day Sunday.
An isolated severe thunderstorm is possible in southeastern NC very late tonight or early Sunday, but the best coverage of severe weather will remain south of our area. Expect gusty winds out of the northeast 15-25 mph. A Small Craft Advisory is also in place.
Colder air arrives as the rain ends late Sunday night, possibly leading to a few snowflakes, mostly in our northern counties. Relatively warm ground temperatures will hamper any major accumulations locally.
