Storm Threat Mostly Across North CarolinaApril 25th, 2014 at 7:25 pm by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
The Hampton Roads cities are looking at scattered thunder and lightning. Periods of heavy rain will be likely this evening. In North Carolina, you are still seeing the highest severe threat.
There are still higher levels of helicity (spin) in the atmosphere which could help to produce a tornado in NE NC. As the line of storms moves closer to the ocean, cooler and drier marine air will weave in to the storms which should weaken them. The severe weather parameters still remain low for the Hampton Roads cities, so the garden variety of thunderstorms. (Thunder, lightning, gusty winds, maybe pea size hail) is what I would count on. In to tonight, Future Trak has us with quiet skies and drying out after 10pm as the cooler air moves in from the northwest.
Tomorrow will be dry with highs near 80.
