Big severe weather outbreak will unfold this evening from portions of the southern Plains through the Tennessee Valley, Lower Mississippi Valley, and Deep South.
Around here, we might see a couple of shower or storms late tonight, but the big show will be tomorrow.
Some of the latest modeling has come in with a more significant severe weather potential for North Carolina than some of the previous runs. It will all depends on how the drier airmass (which is punching into the state now) interacts and moves as the area of rain and storms moves in tomorrow morning.
At this point, I expect a round of rain and storms to sweep through tomorrow morning. Some of those storms could be severe. We might catch a break around early afternoon before another potential round of showers and storms moves in later in the day.
I do think we have the potential for some severe weather. How great that potential is will depend on how several small scale feature set up tomorrow morning.
In short....keep those NOAA weather radios handy and active tomorrow...and we will be staffed and keeping you up to speed as need be on News 14 Carolina.
