..there is a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms eastern NC... 

strong thunderstorms may impact portions of eastern North Carolina 
early Saturday, accompanied by at least some risk for severe 


Strong large-scale mid-level height falls will spread into the 
middle Atlantic and Carolinas region during the day2 period as a 
pronounced upper low ejects across northern Alabama into western NC by 
late afternoon. In response to this feature, 50kt+ low level jet will develop 
across eastern NC which should allow modified maritime air mass to 
advance inland across coastal Carolinas. Forecast soundings suggest 
adequate buoyancy for deep updrafts within a strongly sheared 
environment. It appears some threat for damaging winds will 
accompany the strongest convection during the morning and most 
activity should be shunted offshore by early afternoon. 

..maximum risk by hazard... 
Tornado: <2% - none 
wind: 5% - marginal 
hail: <5% - none
