Severe storms are possible today (Wednesday) and Thursday in portions of the Southeast. A slow-moving trough of low pressure in the eastern United States has been barely moving, spinning around this week. With modest jet stream energy from the trough moving across the southern tier of the nation, a few severe storms will develop.
A cold front will trudge through a water logged atmosphere and spark up strong storms through the afternoon and evening. Isolated tornadoes are possible, but damaging winds and large hail will be the primary threat. The atmosphere will be very moist and unstable, spurring thunderstorm development as the afternoon heat and humidity fuel a resurgence in storms.
On Thursday, the threat for severe thunderstorms covers a small area of North and South Carolina, including Florence and Fayetteville. with a marginal risk.
Storms will fire during the midday hours ahead of a low pressure center and stationary front. Weak jet stream energy will keep the threat for thunderstorms, possibly severe, into the evening.
