In the afternoon and evening, this line of storms will likely increase in intensity and coverage, with a few severe storms likely. Additional development is possible along the cold front.

The chance for strong or isolated severe storms will gradually push southeast across the Florida Peninsula Thursday morning through the mid-afternoon hours.

By Thursday evening, the threat for severe weather is expected to come to an end, however, some storms may continue to impact the Outer Banks until 8 or 9 pm Eastern.
