Overnight weather forecast

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Tuesday is a First Alert Day and brings the risk of severe weather in the afternoon hours. A cold front will move through the region, which could create thunderstorms.

The setup primarily brings a threat of gusty winds.

There is a level 1 risk for the Triangle and a level 2 risk is in place for areas east of it.

Not everyone in the ABC11 23-county coverage area will see thunderstorms, but for areas that do, hail is possible along with those blustery winds.

The greatest threat will be in the late afternoon into the evening.

The activity will push off to the southeast during the evening hours.

Mostly cloudy skies can be expected outside of thunderstorms, but temperatures will likely be a few degrees warmer.

Wednesday will bring cooler weather and lower humidity. Then it will stay dry for the rest of the week.
