Severe Weather Possible — Wednesday 3/17 (10am Update)

Press Release:

    The potential for a regional severe weather outbreak is increasing across the southeastern U.S. tomorrow afternoon and evening, including eastern NC. The Storm Prediction Center has increased our risk level to Moderate for most of the area. The main risks remain damaging wind gusts, large hail in excess of 1 inch in diameter, and tornadoes. A few tornadoes could be strong.

    In addition to severe weather, a strong cold front is forecast to push across the region on Friday bringing strong northerly winds. This could lead to minor to moderate coastal flooding for portions of soundside Outer Banks and tidal tributaries, and ocean overwash across the Northern Outer Banks.

    Attached is our first multi-slide briefing on this developing situation. The next briefing can be expected no later than 5 PM this afternoon. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at (252) 223-5737 Ext. 6.
