    Cell: (252) 378-5352


    Good Morning,

    We are watching for the threat of scattered to numerous thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon and evening. This will begin an active several day period of severe storm possibilities, as a very unstable air mass sits over the region with a stalled front in the vicinity. The storms may also affect the region through the overnight periods as well. Damaging winds, large hail, torrential downpours with localized flooding, and frequent lightning are all possible with the thunderstorms.

    In addition to the severe storm threat, the combination of hot temperatures and very humid conditions will set the stage for potential heat indices reaching 105 degrees or higher on Wednesday, and possibly through the end of the work week.

    If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call 252-223-5737 ext. 6.

    Regards,
    NWS Morehead City
