WEATHER: Chance of Severe Weather Tonight-Monday AM

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Tonight-Monday:
Tonight showers will increase from southwest to northeast as a warm front lifts to the north, bringing some periods of heavy rain and gusty winds. Some of those strong storms could even turn severe, providing the potential for a damaging wind gust or even an isolated tornado.

Severe weather will be most likely from 11pm-3am, mainly for the Coastal Plain and eastern NC. Another round of storms arrives tomorrow after sunrise. Storms will begin to taper off once we get into the afternoon. But even after the storms diminish, it'll be a warm and windy day with wind gusts from 30-40mph at times.

Rainfall amounts have been trending lower. By Monday afternoon, we'll accumulate about an inch of rain. Though some areas that receive stronger storm cells may accumulate an isolated 1.5-2 inch of rain.

Remainder of the Week:

Breezy conditions continue for Tuesday and it'll be cold with highs not even reaching into the 50s for many of us. Wind chills will be in the upper 30s/low 40s for much of the day.
Wednesday will be sunny but still chilly with highs only in the low 50s. Then more seasonable air returns for Thursday with a mixture of sun and clouds.
The next best chance for rain arrives late Friday into early Saturday.

Be Well & Stay Safe,
