SPRING HOPE -— Rain is on the way. 

Southern Nash County residents should expect storms the rest of the week, according to local and state emergency management officials.

A cold front will move through the area Tuesday bringing showers and thunderstorms through Sunday, said Brent Fisher, assistant director of fire, rescue and emergency management for Nash County Emergency Services.

“Some storms may be strong to severe, with gusty winds and brief periods of heavy rain being the primary threats,” Fisher said, quoting from a hazardous conditions report from the National Weather Service.

Localized damaging wind gusts and heavy downpours with isolated flash flooding are the main hazardous concerns, said Kevin Kalbaugh, a meteorologist and manager for the Natural Hazards Branch of the N.C. Department of Public Safety and Emergency Management.

Here’s a detailed forecast for the week in southern Nash County from the National Weather Service:
