RALEIGH, N.C. — Thunderstorms could rock the southern part of the state Friday afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Watches were in effect Friday until 9 p.m. for Bladen and Robeson counties.

Friday's humidity and high dew point makes storms likely, WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.

A cold front moving across the state will be the catalyst for shower and storm development, he added.

"Some of the storms have the potential to become severe, with damaging winds being the main threat," Fishel said.

The front will continue south and east through Friday evening. If it gets hung up north of the South Carolina border, the southern half of the state could see rain into Saturday, Fishel said.
