Cold Front And Severe Weather

July 24th, 2014 at 10:26 am by under Weather

We are in the middle of coverage, but I wanted to just do a quick mention.  We’ve had strong storms in the region this morning along a cold front.  The system is moving east/southeast.  We have had reports of a tornado that touched down near the Cherrystone area of the Eastern Shore.  Here was the radar just shortly after that time:

Severe Storm On Radar

Severe Storm On Radar

We also had reports of large hail in that zone.  Storms continue this morning as the front slowly pushes east.  Heavy rain and strong gusty winds will be possible through noon.  There will be another round of rain later today.  The atmosphere has been worked over pretty good.  So the severe threat should diminish.  However, storms will likely fire up over northeast North Carolina this afternoon where storms have been sparse so far.  We’ll have a bigger update either later this morning or around the midday.  Be safe out there.
