Jim’s First Alert Forecast: Scattered Strong Storms Expected Tuesday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – We’ll be tracking an approaching cold front on Tuesday. Scattered strong storms are likely from mid afternoon through the evening hours as the front moves through eastern NC.

After a quiet morning, storms will start to pop up Tuesday afternoon as instability starts to peak. Storms start to develop across Northern North Carolina and Southern Virginia before sweeping south and southwest in eastern NC Tuesday afternoon. If storms stay isolated, hail will be the main threat. If storms start to line up, damaging wind gusts to 60 mph will be the main threat. Tornadoes don’t look likely, but I never like to say they can’t happen. Severe weather will be possible from around 1 PM through 9 PM.

Make sure to have a way to get warnings and follow me on Facebook @ZachHolderWeather for more updates.

Behind the storms, cooler and less humid air returns for a few days.
