Afternoon Storms for The Carolinas Today

4 May 2022, 11:30 am

Lots of active weather moved through the Ohio River Valley on Tuesday. That same storm producing cold front is now reaching the coastal states. There could be a few isolated but strong storms that develop throughout the afternoon and evening hours. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted a marginal area (above) to monitor for strong wind and hail.

There could be a few stronger storms lasting along the coastal areas through the rush hour time. After sunset, most of the storms will fade while moving off the coast.

 

The rain accumulation will be light unless the storms are slow to move – then there could be isolated spots getting over an 1″ of rainfall.

The wind is expected to pick up throughout the afternoon and evening with gusts between 20 and 30 mph at times.
