Eyes to the sky Sunday-Monday for possible severe weather

Home News Eyes to the sky Sunday-Monday for possible severe weather

The National Weather Service says a cold front approaching our area Sunday evening could bring scattered severe weather overnight: “We’ll likely see destabilization even in the pre-dawn hours early Monday, which when combined with the strong wind fields, deep layer shear, and strong forcing for ascent…all suggest a good chance for scattered severe thunderstorms with this prefrontal squall line early Monday. Severe hazards may include damaging straight-line winds, large hail, and tornadoes. Residents of central NC should prepare now for what could be an active weather episode late Sunday night and early Monday morning across central NC. Preparing now should include: 1) ensuring you have a way to receive storm warnings at night… 2) turn up the ringer/volume on your cell phone so that WEA alerts are heard and wake you up…and 3) before you go to bed Sunday night, make sure you review with your family where to seek shelter in your home should you be woken up by a weather warning and/or an approaching storm” After the storms blows through, temperatures will be in the low ‘80s.
