A thunderstorm warning was issued for Vance, Granville, and Warren Co.
According to NOAA’s National Weather Service, roughly 1,800 thunderstorms are occurring at any given moment, resulting in approximately 16 million thunderstorms per year. Most thunderstorms endure approximately 30 minutes and have a diameter of around 15 miles (24 km). Most thunderstorms are connected with two major threats: lightning and flash floods. Grasp, why thunderstorms occur more frequently during the warm months, necessitates a fundamental understanding of thunderstorms.
Because thunderstorms require moisture and heat, it stands to reason that they will occur more frequently in the spring and early summer, especially in humid areas like the southeastern United States. High humidity and mild temperatures allow vast amounts of warm, moist air to rise into the sky, where it may easily form a thunderstorm. What is the source of the thunder (and lightning)? Thunder clouds, according to the underlying idea, can turn into massive Van de Graaff generators, creating massive charge breakups within the cloud. Let’s take a closer look at how it works. If a tornado is spotted on radar or seen visually, a tornado warning will be issued in addition to or instead of the existing severe thunderstorm warning.  A severe thunderstorm watch or tornado watch (or a regional equivalent thereof) will usually, but not always, precede a warning. If a tornado warning is issued, it signifies that severe rotation has been identified within a thunderstorm using Doppler weather radar. When a thunderstorm produces only weak rotation, it usually produces hazardous weather warranting a severe thunderstorm warning. However, the public is typically informed that this sort of rotation has been discovered and that the storm in question should be actively monitored for additional intensification in the near future.
