STORMTRACK 3: Damaging winds possible in severe storms today
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Damaging winds, and even an isolated tornado will be possible across North Carolina today. A strong system is crossing the southeast, and has many ingredients of a severe weather outbreak.
A strong cold front to our west is allow tropical moisture to surge up the East Coast. As this front pushes farther east, it will spark some showers and thunderstorms. The way the atmosphere is today, it will be easy for any storms that do form to turn severe.
The main threat today will be damaging winds up to 60-70 mph, but a few isolated tornadoes will be possible across the Carolinas as well. Stay with the StormTrack 3 Weather Team throughout the day for updates on the weather.
