According to a briefing released Tuesday morning by the National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City, the NOAA is currently monitoring the threat of scattered to numerous thunderstorms on the afternoon and evening of Wednesday, July 6.
This will begin an active several day period of severe storm possibilities, as a very unstable air mass sits over the region with a stalled front in the vicinity. The storms may also affect the region through the overnight periods as well.
Damaging winds, large hail, torrential downpours with localized flooding, and frequent lightning are all possible with the thunderstorms.
