 THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA.
 
 .DAY ONE...TONIGHT AND SUNDAY.
 
 ...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS LATE TONIGHT AND 
 SUNDAY OVER OUR REGION...
 
 A WARM FRONT OVER NORTH CAROLINA WILL LEAD TO PERIODS OF RAIN AND 
 ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS THAT WILL SPREAD EAST ACROSS THE REGION THIS 
 EVENING. A STRONGER LINE OR BAND OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAY 
 MOVE EAST ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS INTO NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA 
 OVERNIGHT. IT APPEARS THAT THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE MUCH 
 LESS EAST OF THE MOUNTAINS AS THIS LINE MOVES INTO THE REGION. 
 HOWEVER... IF THE LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS HOLDS TOGETHER LONGER THAN 
 ANTICIPATED... A FEW OF THE STORMS MAY CONTINUE TO BE STRONG ENOUGH 
 TO PRODUCE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS MAINLY OVER THE WESTERN AND SOUTHERN 
 PIEDMONT REGION INTO THE SANDHILLS BETWEEN 100 AND 500 AM. AN 
 ISOLATED TORNADO IS POSSIBLE DUE TO THE PROXIMITY OF THE WARM FRONT 
 OVER THE REGION. 
 
 FOR SUNDAY... IT APPEARS THAT THE SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER WILL 
 BE ONGOING OVER THE EASTERN PIEDMONT INTO THE SANDHILLS AND COASTAL 
 PLAIN IF THE LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS REMAINS IN TACT. THERE IS A 
 POSSIBILITY OF STRENGTHENING OF THE LINE OF SHOWERS AND 
 THUNDERSTORMS BETWEEN 500 AND 800 AM DUE TO THE INCREASING SOUTHERLY 
 FLOW AND MOISTURE AS THE LINE APPROACHES THE COASTAL PLAIN AROUND 
 DAYBREAK. AN ISOLATED TORNADO WILL BE POSSIBLE DUE TO THE WARM FRONT 
 OVER THE REGION. ONCE THE LINE PUSHES EAST BY AROUND MID MORNING... 
 THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER WILL DIMINISH. 
 
 THERE WILL BE ANOTHER SLIGHT CHANCE OF ISOLATED SEVERE WEATHER ON 
 SUNDAY AFTERNOON AS ADDITIONAL SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED 
 TO REDEVELOP. THE MAIN THREAT ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON INTO THE EARLY 
 EVENING WILL BE ISOLATED LARGE HAIL AND POSSIBLY DAMAGING WINDS. THE 
 SEVERE THREAT WILL RAPIDLY DIMINISH BY EARLY SUNDAY EVENING. 
 
 .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
 
 HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.
 
 .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
 
 SKYWARN SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT ANY SEVERE OR SIGNIFICANT 
 WEATHER IMMEDIATELY TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.
