STORMTRACK 3: Severe Thunderstorm Watch through 9pm; high winds and hail possible

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Severe thunderstorms are likely to form across our area this afternoon and evening, and the National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 9pm. This means that severe storms capable of damaging winds, and especially hail are expected to form through the evening. 

This will be a similar event to what we saw yesterday. The same stationary boundary is in place, with enough heat and humidity around to add fuel to the fire for these storms. 

Anytime a storm forms, it will be capable of torrential rainfall that can cause flash flooding. Also, impressive hail could form and rain down on an area for a time. 

Please be vigilant this afternoon and evening, as sometimes these storms can form in a moments notice. 

Of course, we’ll have all the warnings for you right here on WWAYTV3.com, on-air on WWAY, and on Facebook and Twitter

– Meteorologist Tim Buckley

Petition signatures verified; smoking ban push at Wrightsville Beach moves forward

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) –- The New Hanover County Board of Elections has verified 233 of the 294 signatures submitted on a petition to put a smoking ban in place on Wrightsville Beach.

According to the town charter, if 35 percent of the voter turnout in the most recent election petitions the town, which is 211 signatures in this case, the Board of Aldermen must either adopt the ordinance or put it up to a vote.

Wrightsville Beach Town Manager Bob Simpson says the board will most likely hold a special meeting June 7 to discuss where they will go from here. Because the board voted 3-2 against a smoking ban earlier this year, Simpson says he expects the ban to go to a vote during the general election in November.
