— The Triangle and northern areas of the state are under a level 1 risk for severe weather Thursday night.

The threat, which means isolated storms are possible, comes with a risk for damaging winds, heavy rain and small hail, WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

A line of storms moving from the west is expected to hit Greensboro around 6:30 p.m. and move into the Triangle between 8 and 10 p.m.

On Friday, most of the state will be under a level 1 risk for severe weather. More damaging winds and heavy rain as well as frequent lightning are possible.

Thursday’s high will be 91, but the heat index will feel like the upper 90s.
