I WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT WE’VE GOT THERE WITH THE SYSTEM RIGHT NOW MOVING MOVING TO THE NORTHEAST AT SEVEN MILES AN HOUR WIND IS 40 MILES AN HOUR SUSTAINED RIGHT NOW. IT DOES LOOK AS IF IT’S ON LAND, BUT IT’S JUST OFFSHORE RIGHT NOW AND IT’S GONNA ROLL IN ALONG THE LAND AND INTERACT WITH IT AND LIKELY DISSIPATE BY LATE TOMORROW NIGHT WITH THAT THOUGH. WE ARE GETTING SOME GUSTS ANYWHERE FROM 25 WE’VE SEEN TO 35 MILES AN HOUR AT TIMES IN BEAUFORT EARLIER TODAY AND UP THROUGH BUXTON NAGS HEAD COROLLA. WE’RE EXPECTING TO SEE HIGHER GUSTS. IT’S JUST A MATTER OF ALL THAT RAIN AND THAT NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT. WE TALK ABOUT IT IF IT’S HEADING IN THIS DIRECTION, THE NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT IS STILL WELL OFFSHORE AND THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS RIGHT NOW. WE’RE NOT SEEING AS MUCH RAIN. YOU NOTICE ALSO WE’VE GOT CLOUDS UP ACROSS THE TRIAD. WELL, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POSSIBILITIES AROUND THE CAROLINAS THROUGH TOMORROW NOT JUST FROM TROPICAL STORM. COLIN COLIN DOES MOVE AWAY TO THE NORTH AND EAST IT WILL CREATE SOME HEAVY. AT TIMES BUT THEN WITH A QUICK MOVING SYSTEM. THIS SHOULD BE OUT OF THE HAIR FOR EVERYBODY BY JULY 4TH. SO THIS IS GOOD NEWS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR US THAT YOU CAN SEE THAT TROPICAL STORM WARNING OFF A LONGER COAST THE THUNDERSTORMS HERE ARE PRETTY INTENSE RIGHT NOW, AND WE’RE LOOKING AT GROWING HEIGHTS TO 50,000 FEET. SO THIS IS A NOISY ONE FOR FOLKS BETWEEN MOUNT AIRY AND HILLSVILLE HAVE NOT SEEN THE WINDS COME UP QUITE SO MUCH YET, BUT YOU’RE GOING TO GET SOME THUNDERSTORM GUS OUT OF THIS FOR SURE 50,000 FOOT HEIGHTS HEAVY RAINS FROM CROOKED OAK AS WE GO SOUTH THROUGH DOBSON AND SO MOVING. IN THROUGH SURRY COUNTY AND ALSO KIND OF SHOW JUST A SLIDING I WOULD SAY JUST DOWN TO THE SOUTH AND EAST FROM HILLSVILLE FROM STUART AREA AND INTO OUR NORTHERN SECTIONS LIKE STOKES COUNTY ALSO TO THE EAST WE HAD ONE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING UP FOR FOLKS OUT THERE IN PENNSYLVANIA COUNTY AND THAT IS SOMETHING TO WATCH FOR FOR CASWELL COUNTY. WE’LL KEEP OUR EYES OPEN A LOT OF WIND REPORTS FROM THAT SYSTEM AND RAINFALL TOTAL SO FAR HAVE REALLY BEEN FROM THE TROPICAL SYSTEM ALONG OUR COAST COLIN PRODUCING ANY FORWARD FROM ONE TO ALMOST THREE INCHES IN A FEW SPOTS. INLAND THIS IS JUST SOUTH OF WILMINGTON. SO JUST WEST OF THE OAK ISLAND AREA IN SOUTHPORT AREA. THEY’VE SEEN SOME HIGH TOTAL SO FAR COULD CAUSE SOME FLASH FLOODING AND COASTAL FLOODING AS SOME OF THOSE RAIN BANDS MOVE IN LATER TONIGHT SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCHES MAY BE UP FOR SOME FOLKS. BUT TOMORROW IT’S REALLY A MARGINAL RISK FOR US AND THEN BY MONDAY NOTICES WE DROP OUT OF SEVERE AND JUST GENERAL ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE EXPECT TO SEE A QUIETER FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY FOR YOU. WE HAVE THREE SYSTEMS THAT WERE ALSO MONITORING OF COURSE BONNIE. WE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT THIS ONE TRAVELING. OVER CENTRAL AMERICA RIGHT NOW. WE ALSO ARE WATCHING THE WIND RIVER ISLANDS IN BAHAMAS FOR THE NEXT SYSTEM TO DEVELOP AS WELL FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. LOTS OF WIND AND RAIN ALONG OUR COAST WE’RE EXPECTING TO SEE THOSE WAVE HEIGHTS ANYWHERE FROM FIVE TO SIX FEET IN THE LONGSHORE CURRENT RISK THAT CONTINUES FOR FOLKS FROM OAK ISLAND UP THROUGH CURRY. AREA AND CAROLINA BEACH. WE’VE TALKED ABOUT THE SHOWER. STRONG POSSIBILITIES FROM THE SYSTEM YOU CAN SEE IT ON THE VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY THAT BEAUTIFUL SPIN OUT THERE, BUT IT IS STILL FOR THE CENTER OFF COAST RIGHT NOW. OUR TEMPERATURES AT 81 DEGREES IN REIDSVILLE 87 DEGREES FOR AN 89 IN WINSTON-SALEM WARM TODAY TO 91 DEGREES AND 92 IN BURLINGTON. WE CERTAINLY FEEL TROPICAL AND WE’VE BEEN THAT WAY MOST OF THE WEEK WITH THE HIGH HUMIDITY THAT CONTINUE THROUGH TOMORROW YOUR RAIN CHANCES INCREASE IN THE AFTERNOON WITH HIGHS NEAR 87. WE SHOULD BE IN THE LOW TO MID 70S TOMORROW IN THE MOUNTAINS STARTING OUT AROUND 60 AND RAIN CHANCES COMING UP AFTER THE NEW AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORM POSSIBILITIES FOR EVERYBODY. BUT AGAIN, THOSE ARE ISOLATED SO ONE OR TWO STORMS COULD BRING IN SOME HEAVY RAIN AND OF COURSE SOME WIND FOOTHILLS FROM 71 TO NEAR 86 DEGREES AND THEN HOUR BY HOUR SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM FORECAST BRINGING IN A GOOD BIT OF RAIN FOR US TOMORROW AND THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. WE’LL HAVE SOME MORE OPPORTUNITIES TAKE A LASER SEVEN-DAY FORECAST. WE’VE GOT EIGHTIES TOMORROW A DRYER MONDAY. IT LOOKS LIKE WITH JUST POP-UP STORMS AND MORE RAIN CHANC
