A Tornado Warning until 4:30 p. m. We have a producer in the back, can you pop up the Fayetteville camera for us as well real quick and we can see what's going on again. Fayetteville is not in this 20. The warning Hope Mills is not in this 22 warning either. But this camera is looking off towards the south, you can see that dark sky, the thunder, the lightning off in the distance as well as that very heavy rain And again the 20 the warning currently back off towards the south. Let's get back to the weather computer and show you what's going on. Currently. Again, A 20 the warning is in effect across southern portions of Cumberland County. We are showing you the olympics on the side of your screen as well as the 20. The warning in effect for southern Cumberland County. This in effect until 4:30 p.m. The system itself is moving east at 40 mph. This is the first of many storms that we've seen pop up and move through many of our communities this past afternoon. But in terms of what we're looking at right now, not seeing too much in terms of the broad rotation itself. When I'm looking at this velocity pattern, not seeing a lot in terms of where a 22 could be on the ground, We're gonna watch this pretty closely over the next 10-15 minutes. Right now. We are not seeing that there is 21 on the ground based on the velocity pattern, based on everything we are seeing in our computer system from the rotation detector, very minimal to the sheer itself, not much rotation there either. And in terms of our other severe threats from our computer complex and computer models right now, I'm not seeing any rotation. So currently we are seeing a lot of showers and thunderstorms across not only Cumberland County, Also across southern portions of our immediate viewing area, I'm meteorologist Zach Malakian, the WRL, severe weather, so we're gonna continue to watch this pretty closely. There is a tornado warning in effect for southern portions of Cumberland County right now. I'm not saying that there is any indication that 20 is on the ground. We will watch this. Let's get back to the olympics and we'll cut back into coverage to see if this system does intensify over the next few minutes or so.
