FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Hail, strong wind gusts possible Thursday

Severe Thunderstorm Warning 05/10/2018

"The main threat with any severe storms that do happen to develop would be damaging winds and large hail (1" in diameter or more).

In the Omaha area, the weather service said Friday will bring a slight chance of showers and a high in the upper 70s. In fact, the Storm Prediction Center has expanded the "Marginal" risk for severe weather to include the entire North Carolina Piedmont, the foothills, and the mountain zones.

Forecasters say Friday is shaping up to be a nice spring day with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s.

Cooler weather on Sunday behind a cold front, but after that front pushes through, a few scattered showers and storms are possible into early next week.

A warming trend continues today thanks to high pressure as our dominant weather feature today.

The mix of clouds and sun should turn to rain around the afternoon rush hour with a chance of some severe thunderstorms passing through.

Sunday's Mother's Day forecast isn't looking to spectacular at the moment, with highs in the mid-60s and showers possible through the day.

It should be dry Monday for the start of the workweek, the weather service said.
