Thunderstorms predicted for Tuesday night as weather slogs through

From staff reportsApril 7, 2014 

— Monday night could bring thunderstorms to the Triangle. A weather system has funneled rain from Gulf Coast states to North Carolina throughout the day, with rain totals expected to reach 1 to 2 inches in total.

The National Weather Service has warned that a warm front Monday night may cause severe thunderstorms and possibly an “isolated tornado” in an area extending from the coast as far west as Hickory. However, the potential for severe weather was declining as of about 5:30 p.m., according to government forecasters.

The Triangle may see thunderstorms and showers again on Tuesday morning, though the likelihood is much less than forecasted for Monday night. The weather service predicts another chance of rain on Wednesday, and sunny skies Thursday.
