Raleigh, N.C. — The threat for severe weather will largely remain south of the Triangle on Monday evening, but the weather was causing damage in several counties.

The Harnett County Sheriff’s Office said crews were assessing property damage in the area of Kipling Road, north of Lillington, after straight-line winds downed several trees.
In Wake Forest, one person was injured in the 900 block of Golden Star Way when storms caused a tree to fall. The extent of that person’s injuries were unknown.
The storm left more than 4,200 people without power in Johnston County while more than 2,400 were without power in Harnett County.
WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said the cold front had already moved past Raleigh by about 4 p.m., putting an end to the chance for severe weather in the Triangle.
“In all honesty, I believe Raleigh and the Triangle in general, the threat for your severe weather is done,” he said. “If we do see severe weather, it’s not going to be on a widespread basis.”

Maze said the chance for severe storms will linger in the southern counties, but all threats should subside by about 10 p.m.
Showers will continue overnight and through Tuesday, when the cold front keeps temperatures in the 70s all day.
“Even though the rain is not likely to be heavy tomorrow, have an umbrella with you because you might need it from time to time,” Maze said.
