Though the tornado threat is low, an isolated tornado or two will be possible. During the evening, storms will merge into a line with the main threats becoming damaging winds and heavy rain.
A weak cold front will move through the Carolinas and Virginia on Thursday, allowing for showers and thunderstorms.
