Severe storms possible Sunday; threats include wind, large hail and tornadoes

A powerful low-pressure system and a cold front will bring a heightened chance for severe thunderstorms across the Piedmont on Sunday afternoon.

Scattered showers will start the day.  But as we warm up and as the cold front moves closer, our severe thunderstorm chances will increase.  Our severe weather threat could begin as early as 3 p.m., FOX8 Meteorologist Charles Ewing said.

Waves of possibly strong to severe thunderstorms will march across the area.  The main danger will be damaging wind gusts.  But flooding will be possible along with large hail.  Unfortunately, there is also a tornado threat, Ewing said.  The storms will exit the region between midnight Monday and 2 a.m. Monday.
