...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER PARTS OF
THE CAROLINAS...

...SUMMARY...
Thunderstorms will offer marginal severe-weather risk over parts of
the eastern Carolinas.

...Carolinas...
An upper low is currently centered today over GA, lifting slowly
northeastward.  Large-scale lift ahead of this feature is resulting
in rather widespread showers and thunderstorms over parts of
SC/NC/VA.  Northeasterly low-level winds, cool conditions near the
surface, and marginal CAPE will limit the risk of severe storms over
the majority of the region.  The possible exception will be near the
SC/NC coast where a weak warm front is poised.  Ample low-level
moisture and marginal surface-based instability may be sufficient
for an isolated cell to interact with the boundary and produce
damaging winds or perhaps a brief tornado later today.  An isolated
cell capable of hail is also possible this afternoon in vicinity of
the upper low center over western SC.  Both of these threat areas
appear to be quite marginal in nature.
