— A cold front brought light rain to the Triangle on Thursday evening.

Storms caused by the front showed the potential to cause severe whether in central North Carolina, but failed to do so earlier Thursday. 

A severe thunderstorm watch that was issued for much of central and eastern counties was canceled. Various severe thunderstorm warnings also popped up as the system moved east. 

There was a report of a roof being completely blown off of a home on East Langley Road in Wilson, authorities said. A family was home at the time, but no one was hurt. 

Wilson County also had reports of downed trees. 

In Edgecombe County, a 10-foot portion of a roof of a hog operation on Nobles Mill Pond Road was torn off during the storm. No injuries were reported. 

Central and eastern North Carolina could see a half-inch to 1 inch of rain by late Thursday.

    I don't think Mr Fishel and Ms Gardner care what we say,

    Actually one never knows if any WRAL employees (beyond mods) read comments.

    I agree.... and we got so much rain, the croakers are up to their pectoral fins again. They just might make it yet!

    HOw in the span of 20 minutes did WRAL change the headline from "severe threat deminishes" back to "severe thunderstomrs still possible"? Typical!

    "The comments about "brine" vs "brime" are halarious and are meant to be that way." USA

    Any "joke" repeated over and over gets old and this conversation is repeatedly started by the same person on each and every weather story posted. It simply comes down to one individual constantly needing attention to feel fullfilled in life.

    It seems likely that "brime" may be a clever portmanteau of "rime" and "brine", representing the frostlike appearance of dried brine that's left behind one streets and sidewalks.

    braxtonsmomma10 Lighten up a bit. The comments about "brine" vs "brime" are halarious and are meant to be that way. As for missing the forecast, I don't think Mr Fishel and Ms Gardner care what we say, but we still have a right to say it; just as you do, but don't take yourself so seriously.

    Well, that looks like it's about all, folks. Hope nobody got washed or blown away.
