Greensboro, NC -- Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon out ahead of a cold front that will pass through the region later this evening.
Considering the front will move in during the hottest part of the day, heat energy could provide the fuel necessary for severe storms. The primary threat will be hail and damaging straight-line winds. All of North Carolina is included in the severe weather threat, but the greatest threat will be from Raleigh to Fayetteville eastward into the Coastal Plain.
The threat of severe thunderstorms in the Triad will be from 3 pm until 9 pm this evening.
WFMY News 2's Grant Gilmore said the entire area is under a watch until 10:00pm. The storm could produce strong winds, that will knock down power lines and trees.
A Severe Thunderstorm watch has been issued for much of Virginia including Pittsylvania, Henry, Patrick, Carroll, and Grayson counties until 7pm. Other severe weather watches may be issued for parts on Central North Carolina later this afternoon.
