Strong storms, tornadoes possible in parts of Deep South

Posted May 25, 2017

A tornado watch is now in place for North Florida until 3 p.m. due to active weather across portions of the panhandle.

A localized area near Southern Pines and Wadesboro has an "enhanced" tornado risk, forecasters said.

A cold front will approach the area this afternoon, triggering a line of showers and thunderstorms that may be severe.

The storm struck the area around 3 p.m., with the worst of the damage being near the town of Pomaria.

Most of the Charlotte area is still under a Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday night after constant rain fell to start the week.

A tornado warning was issued Tuesday evening for Dare County, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Wanchese. Isolated hail up to ping pong ball size is also possible. Heavy rain from storms could fall on saturated grounds and lead to flash flooding.

Close to half dozen severe thunderstorm warnings were issued across Central Florida, as the radar estimated the storms' winds at 60 miles per hour.

Temperatures today should be below average, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s, and a little warmer in northeastern North Carolina.
