There will be a slight risk of isolated to scattered severe thunderstorms developing across portions of eastern North Carolina on Monday, May 27, per an update from the National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City office.

The primary severe risk is damaging wind gusts of 40-70 mph, but hail up to golf-ball size is also possible. There is also a threat of tornadoes, as well as heavy rains.

This is a unique event in that the environment is supportive of higher impact severe weather for eastern North Carolina, but confidence in where/if thunderstorms will form is lower than normal. As such, the public is advised to have multiple ways to receive weather and tornado warnings, if warrented.
