Dangerous Squall Line Sunday

An intense squall line of thunderstorms will track into the southeastern U.S. Sunday afternoon and evening, bringing heavy downpours and damaging wind gusts.

The squall line of thunderstorms will stretch from North Carolina to the Florida Panhandle, racing eastward through Sunday evening.

In addition to flooding downpours, thunderstorms will produce frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, hail and wind gusts in excess of 70 mph, which will lead to downed trees.

The combination of strong winds and lightning will also likely lead to some power outages.
