Severe weather possible heading into this afternoon

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Damaging winds and even an isolated tornado are threats we’re monitoring in the StormTrack 3 Weather Center as a powerful cold front moves across the Carolinas today. 

Heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms will cross into the viewing area by 10 a.m. At this time, storms will have an opportunity to strengthen with warm air and humidity in place. Some storms could strengthen enough to produce high winds over 50 mph at times. This threat will exist anywhere from 10 a.m. through 5 p.m. 

A secondary threat that we are watching is the possibility for a few storms to rotate, and produce a brief tornado. This is not a high risk, but a possibility nonetheless. If any tornadoes form, we’ll have all the latest warnings for you on-air, online, on Facebook, and on Twitter

This system is a fast mover, and all of the rain will be ending around 5pm this evening with skies rapidly clearing as we head into the overnight hours. 

Remember, you can track the storms at home with our new Interactive Radar.

Keep it here with WWAY for all the latest on the weather.
