Thunderstorms possible overnight as storms continue into Thursday

Posted June 4, 2014

— Thunderstorms are possible overnight and expected Thursday as a band of severe weather moves across North Carolina.

“Not likely to see any severe weather locally overnight but we will see some thunderstorms,” WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said. “Not everyone will get wet and some of the downpours could be quite heavy.”

The storms follow severe thunderstorms in the Triangle Wednesday afternoon, resulting in downed trees in Durham and Wake Counties. Rocky Mount saw heavy rainfall while some parts of western Wake County saw none.

"Tomorrow will be warm, but maybe a little less humid," WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson said. "Friday will be even nicer. Friday night and Saturday morning, it will be really comfortable to be outside. It will be warm but not hot, with lower humidity."

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected Thursday with a possible shower in the morning and increased chances for showers and storms in the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to reach 88 degrees.
