Claudette Bringing Showers & Storms on Father's Day

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Tropical Depression Claudette will continue to bring scattered showers and storms to central NC through the evening. Some of these storms will bring heavy rain, causing the potential for localized flooding. Any storms that do turn severe pose the risk of producing damaging wind gusts, even an isolated tornado.

The greatest risk of a tornado lies in the Sandhills and especially for areas along and east I-95.

The risk of severe weather should end by 2 a.m. After 2 a.m, only a lingering shower will remain in parts of the region.

Monday will start off cloudy with some drizzle, then skies will brighten throughout the day. By the afternoon, it'll be partly to mostly sunny. Expect a hot and humid day with highs in the 90s but head indices in the mid to upper 90s (near 100 in the Sandhills).

A cold front will bring more showers and storms to central NC Tuesday afternoon and evening. One or two of those storms could turn severe and produce a damaging wind gust, so remain weather aware throughout the day.

Behind that front, cooler and more comfortable air arrives for Wednesday.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!
