STORMTRACK 3: Severe Thunderstorms possible today. Watch until 6pm.
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Damaging winds and large hail will be possible in thunderstorms that form this afternoon and evening. The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the entire area until 6pm.
A stalled front across the central Carolinas is providing a boundary between drier, cooler air to the west with warmer, and more humid air here along the coast. This battleground will cause thunderstorms to blossom later today, and allow them to strengthen to severe levels.
A severe thunderstorm watch means that severe weather is possible, but is not yet occurring. If and when severe storms form, severe thunderstorm warnings will be issued. Stay tuned to WWAY on-air, online, and on Facebook and Twitter throughout the day.
