Raleigh, NC – The National Weather Service has raised a serious storm hazard for the observation area on Saturday morning.
Areas northwest of the triangle, including Chapel Hill and Durham, are at risk level 1. The new triangle is at risk level 2, and our southeastern counties are at a rarer, more serious level 3 risk.
The storms are expected to take place in central North Carolina from 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday. You can download the WRAL Weather program to receive alerts when severe storms come to your area.
Destructive winds and short-term tornadoes will be the main threats in risk areas 1 and 2. In areas with a risk level of 3 there is a possibility of increased tornadoes.
Before the thunderstorms on Friday will be milder, cloudy with a temperature of 60 to mid. In the morning trips spotty fog and rain with places of thick fog are possible. After a cloudy but mostly dry day, short-term rains are possible on Friday evening and night.
Some weekend events and festivals may be canceled or postponed due to severe weather expected on Saturday morning. Cary has already postponed the celebration of Spring Day from Saturday to Sunday, but the St. Patrick’s Day Festival in central Raleigh, which with a large number of visitors, will be raining or shining due to the amount of planning, organizers told WRAL News.
Thunderstorms are expected to leave the area well before noon on Saturday, followed by colder air. The afternoon will be windy, gusting to 40 miles per hour. The temperature will drop throughout the day, in the afternoon, probably to 40 degrees.
Light rain and snow are possible on the North Carolina-Virginia border. Even in a triangle the temperature by evening can be up to 30.
Sunday will be cool with temperatures ranging from 20 to 20 degrees. Set the clock before bed on Saturday night, because on Sunday at 2 o’clock in the morning we “switch” with the beginning of summer time.
Some people hate summer time and others love it. This can go awry with your sleep schedule, but starting on Sunday, the sun will set an hour later, closer to 7:30 pm than 6:30 pm. Before the summer solstice the sun will set only after 20:30
While temperatures will start in adolescence and the 20th year, temperatures will rebound on Saturday afternoon, maximum temperatures will be above 40 and below 50 and a lot of sunlight is expected.
