Severe weather season across the Southeast usually begins in late February or March as warmer air in the South clashes with colder air from the north that still tries to invade the area. Eastern North Carolina sees much of their severe weather during the months of April and May. Most of the severe weather develops along and just of ahead of cold fronts as they push into the area from the west and northwest. One of those fronts will arrive in eastern North Carolina early Tuesday and has a good chance of setting off a strong round of thunderstorms, some of which may become severe. It looks like the remainder of this week will be quiet but more stormy periods are likely over the coming weeks.
