Unlike most severe weather patterns, where a single band of storms is followed by long periods of calm, Wednesday could bring one band of severe weather after another in short order, King said.

The National Weather Service in Tulsa says damaging hails and "locally intense wind gusts" are possible, along with a limited tornado risk.

Several factors are coming together to form a mix-mash of severe weather, said Jason Holmes, a meteorologist with the NWS office in Birmingham.

The threats with Wednesday's storms include strong winds, heavy downpours, hail, and isolated tornadoes.

"We get a quiet, gorgeous day today, but please be very weather aware on Wednesday", Monahan said.

Beginning at about 6 p.m. Wednesday, storms are expected to sweep through central North Carolina.

The space blanket was one of four covers created to guard the station from micrometeoroids, and also for thermal protection. This was the 199th EVA in station history, the fourth so far this year, the sixth for Kimbrough and the eighth for Whitson.

AFTERNOON ROUND: Scattered storms remain possible during the afternoon and early evening hours.

The first EF-1 tornado was reported just after 4 a.m. Monday near Oak Park Drive in Madisonville, officials said.

The storm system that moved through the Carolinas on Monday affected the western part of North Carolina and SC more than central North Carolina.

The rain, wind and hail that ripped through the Lowcountry Monday left a trail of downed power lines and trees.

The high temperature Wednesday should be around 74, with the low Wednesday night dipping to about 49.
