NORTH CAROLINA (WTVD) — Counties in central and eastern North Carolina are at risk for severe weather just one week after high winds, heavy rain and at least seven tornadoes ripped through parts of the Tar Heel state.
As of Thursday morning, areas near Raleigh and the Sandhills are under a marginal risk for severe storms on Friday.

Don “Big Weather” Schwenneker said thunderstorms should push into the area Friday evening.

He said the biggest threats for our area are damaging winds and hail.

While flooding and tornadoes are possible, Big Weather said the chances are low.

The rainy weather won’t stick around long. Sunshine will return Saturday, and temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s.
