For areas south of the Triangle, a Level 1 is relatively low but First Alert meteorologist Steve Stewarts says a warm front lifting northward could bring gusty winds and possibly some rotating cells, so an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
Severe thunderstorm risk is marginal; however, the greatest chance for severe storm impacts will be south of Route 64 and east near the coast.
There will be quite a bit of rain for the rest of Sunday with moderate and heavy showers continuing throughout the viewing area. In the last 24 hours, it has rained the heaviest was north and west of I-85 with the doppler estimating 1-2 inches.
A line of strong/severe storms is moving to the northeast and will enter the western viewing area soon. The yellow shaded polygon is a Severe Thunderstorm Warning - in effect until 3:15pm. The main threat is a damaging wind gust but large hail is also possible. pic.twitter.com/6uc2zujdLn— Robert Johnson (@RobJohnsonABC11) October 11, 2020
The predictor showed the showers lifting north with a lull around 1 to 3 p.m. but more bands will strong pop up around 5 p.m. and bring the chance for a more severe storm.
