The Grand Strand could see some severe thunderstorms Sunday night.

According to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, North Carolina, Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas have a “slight” chance for scattered severe storms, meaning “short-lived and/or not widespread, isolated intense storms possible.”

Some parts of the Carolinas farther inland are forecast as “enhanced,” meaning “numerous severe storms possible” and “more persistent and/or widespread, a few intense” storms could happen. Parts of Florida, Georgia and Alabama are forecast to get the worst of the severe storms.
