Sunday afternoon could bring some widely scattered showers and even thunderstorms across central North Carolina.
"These storms will not be related directly to Beryl, but rather an influx of deeper moisture and instability from the Atlantic. While the cells will probably be rather hit and miss in nature, a few may produce locally heavy downpours," Wilmoth said.
The effects of that system are likely to come by mid-week. Forecast models show Beryl making landfall along the Florida-Georgia line late Sunday and moving inland before making another turn to the north.
