A tornado warning is in effect for Wayne counties until 6:45 p.m.

The warning came after radar indicated rotation in that area. The south side of Goldsboro is under the greatest threat.

Portions of Johnston County and Sampson County were also under the warning, but the threat has passed, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm is moving eastward at 35 mph.

A line of storms moved in from the west, bringing the possibility of strong wind gusts.

Most of the ABC11 viewing area is in the “marginal” risk area for severe weather, which is a level 1 out of 5.

Some powerful wind gusts are still possible Tuesday as storms move through this afternoon. There will be a line of showers, but no lightning expected.

Temperatures will top out in the low to mid-70s for much of the area. Some localized flooding or a small pocket of hail is possible as well, but are not big threats this afternoon.

Isolated showers hit during the morning with scattered rain developing through the middle of the day. Pop-up storms will develop in the afternoon for the next couple of hours, until about 8 p.m., before moving on into the Coastal Plain through sunset.

It will clear later, with lows in the 45-50 degrees range.
It should be sunny tomorrow, with highs in the mid-60s to 70s and lows in the 42-47 range.
