Calm Day After The StormsApril 26th, 2014 at 7:46 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
Dry air has moved back in across Hampton Roads and today we will be looking at calm weather. It will be a good day for clean-up across North Carolina.
You can see the storm reports above, that red dot is the tornado report from just outside of Elizabeth City. This morning, we saw a mobile home that was turned over from that area of the reported tornado. The National Weather Service will be going out to that location later today to survey the damage. The storm survey crews will be analyzing the damage to see if it was a tornado, and if so, what type it was (EF0, EF1, EF2…). In addition, there was also a peak wind gust of 64mph from Elizabeth City last night. The National Weather Service also listed other damage reports of trees down and destroyed houses from around Perquimans county. More Photos Of The Storm
An area of high pressure will be in control today, that will keep our skies sunny in to the afternoon. High temperatures should be near 80 degrees today. Tonight, another cold front will move through, but this time we only have a chance to see scattered showers across the Eastern Shore and the Northern Neck. A rumble of thunder is possible, but these storms will not be severe. Then tomorrow, cooler air will filter in across our region. Highs should be near 69 tomorrow.
Enjoy your weekend,
