Most of the storms on the radar are currently well below severe weather thresholds, but their movement to the southwest could make for some decent rainfall totals (0.50"-1.00"). Some of these storms may have a couple lightning strikes, but the overall trend has been garden variety rainmakers and not thunderstorms.
Heaviest showers are mainly east of 17 extending along a line from northern Bertie county southwest through southern Duplin county. West of 17 will remain mostly dry this afternoon, but parts of Pitt , Martin and eastern Lenoir counties may receive a quick shower.
At this time, widespread severe weather is not anticipated, but we will continue to monitor the situation.
