Good Afternoon Everyone,
Our office is currently monitoring the potential for severe weather this evening through Monday morning. The Storm Prediction Center is considering most of Beaufort County to be at an "Enhanced"
risk for severe weather as a front approaches our area tomorrow. It is uncommon to see areas classified at this category so far in advance. Please refer to the attachment and email below from the National Weather Service (NWS) for additional information. They have scheduled their next update for 6am tomorrow. We will continue to share forecast information as it develops.
As always, feel free to contact us if we can be of any assistance, and thank you all for what you do to keep Beaufort County prepared and safe.
