The risk extends through Alabama, Georgia and the carolinas.
In North Carolina, rain should move in during the early morning hours with scattered showers stick around through lunchtime.
We expect a few periods of rain today with the best chance coming this afternoon and early tonight. Between 3 and 7 p.m., we’ll see some thunderstorms with possible gusty winds.
The biggest threat for us is an isolated damaging wind gust and even a brief tornado.
Tuesday’s threat comes days after storms caused power outages, property damage and several schools to close last week.
