Afternoon storms possible

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- There is a marginal risk (level 1 of 5) of severe thunderstorms for most of the Triangle Thursday afternoon and evening. The main threat is damaging wind.

Downpours and small hail will also be possible.

The Sandhills are now under a level 2 risk for severe storms. The timing of the threat is 4 p.m. until midnight.

Storm coverage is leaning a bit more spotty in our area through the day. But, any storms that develop could be strong to severe.

Friday brings a break from the severe weather threat. Highs will be in the mid 90s, with feels-like temps near 100. Skies will be mostly sunny with a stray shower/storm chance.

A cold front will start pushing into the region Friday evening. Humidity levels will gradually come down Friday evening.

The calm conditions will be a welcome site to people in Nash County who will be cleaning up damage from a tornado that moved through the area.
