Severe weather possible as cooler air moves in Monday

Posted April 30

— After what WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said was the hottest April on record for Raleigh, May will begin with a cold front that brings the potential for some severe storms.

High dew points on Sunday made for another sticky day around central and eastern North Carolina. But it won't last much longer.

Temperatures on Monday will only top out in the low 80s and a line of storms associated with a cold front that will move in late in the day will keep temperatures low for the remainder of the week.

Although Wilmoth said the line of storms will likely weaken by time they reach central North Carolina, they bring the potential for damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes.

"We do have the potential for a few isolated severe storms," she said.
