Severe thunderstorms headed this way Wednesday afternoon

LOCAL NEWS — The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Moore County on Wednesday morning. A strong line of storms is expected to move into our area this afternoon and then again late tonight and into Thursday morning.

The storms will be the result of a cold front moving through the Tennessee Valley. NWS predicts damaging winds, and large hail possibly up to two inches in diameter. There’s also a slight chance of tornado activity. The greatest chance for strong storm will be after midnight, so locals should check their weather radios and make sure they aren’t in “do not disturb” mode.
