Raleigh, NC-- National Weather Service says parts of eastern and southern North Carolina have a good chance of seeing severe storms Wednesday.
The service's Storm Prediction Center has placed areas to the east and south of a line from Monroe to Raleigh to Nags Head under a moderate risk of severe storms Wednesday.
That means there is a 45 percent chance of tornados or thunderstorms with 75 mph winds or hail 2 inches in diameter within 25 miles of any place included in the moderate risk.
The storm is part of the same system expected to brought severe weather from Texas to Georgia on Christmas Day. The storm could also bring winds up to 60 mph to the southwest corner of the state and snow to the mountains.
