First Alert Evening Weather Forecast: August 10

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- There is a level 2 risk of severe thunderstorms across the Triangle today.

Damaging winds pose the greatest risk, though storms will be capable of hail, isolated tornadoes, and locally heavy downpours.

Western parts of the Triangle saw activity starting mid to late morning, with areas near Raleigh and eastward getting into the action during the late-morning early-afternoon timeframe.

Although the overall severe threat has diminished throughout the afternoon and early evening, there are still some ingredients in place that would allow any storms which form later this afternoon and evening to reach severe levels.

Any ongoing storms this evening will quickly diminish and end after sunset. Skies will at least partially clear overnight with dewpoints dropping off into the upper 60s after midnight.
