Written by on June 2, 2015 in Local Forecast Discussion

Day 2 thunderstorm outlook from the SPC for Wednesday.

Active weather pattern will remain in place for the duration of the week bringing strong thunderstorm and heavy rain across the area.

Currently a near stationary front and mid-level shortwave energy reside to the west of ENC along a line between Charlotte, NC and Richmond, VA. This front will slowly approach ENC then become quasi-stationary Wednesday through Thursday night. This setup will set the stage for some strong thunderstorms with the primary threat of strong winds, heavy rain, and potential flooding under these storms. Some localized locations across ENC could see rainfall totals greater than 1″.

Activity on Wednesday should begin in the late morning towards the onset of daytime heating and persist into the afternoon. Once daytime heating wanes after sunset overall coverage will begin to lessen.

Overall forecast rainfall totals for the week could exceed 1.50″ with the highest forecast upwards to 3″.


WPC forecast rainfall totals for the remainder of the week.

Thursday will be more of the same as the quasi-stationary front remains over the area.
