Some of the storms could be severe, with small hail, heavy downpours and strong gusty winds, according to Trent Davis, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's forecast office in Mount Holly.

The National Weather Service says that the storm could include 60 miles per hour wind gusts and nickel size hail and possible damage to trees and power lines.

Today, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 87, the weather service said.

With the increased heat and humidity, afternoon shower and storm chances are possible both days. South breezes return at 5-15mph and with that some slightly higher humidity.

The weather service warned of wind damage to roofs, siding and trees.
