Potential for severe storms Wednesday evening

A round of heavy showers and strong storms are expected to move through the FOX 46 viewing area Wednesday afternoon.

High pressure to the east of the Carolinas is ushering in a southwesterly wind flow. That wind will moisten up the atmosphere and lead to storm development between the hours of 2-8 pm on Wednesday.

Some of the storms will become severe with gusty winds and copious lightning being the main risks.

Hail is a lower concern with an even lower risk for tornadoes. The entire FOX 46 viewing area is under a slight risk for severe storms.

A slight risk for severe weather means short lived and intense storms are expected.
