STORMTRACK 3: Powerful storm system brings rain to the area
SOUTHEASTERN NC (WWAY) — The same storm system that ripped through the country and spawned dozens of tornadoes is fortunately weakening as it passes over our area.
We can still expect heavy rain and gusty winds Saturday as the cold front swings through. As the front moves offshore, cooler temperatures will filter in, but chilly, soaking rain will stick around through Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
The threat for severe weather is diminishing, but isolated thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. The primary threat for our area with this system is damaging wind.
Unfortunately, parts of Georgia, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle are in the danger zone for more severe weather and possibly more tornadoes.
