RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch through 10 p.m. Friday evening for an area along the North Carolina – Virginia border, but the watch has since been lifted.
Some isolated storms immediately ahead of a cold front pushed through late Friday afternoon and early Friday night.
A tornado watch means a tornado can possibly form in the watch area at any given time.
If a funnel cloud is spotted coming down from the clouds or if enough rotation is detected in the clouds using Doppler radar, officials issue a tornado warning. If a tornado warning is issued for your area, seek shelter immediately. The lowest, most interior room in your home is the safest place to be if a tornado hits.
