The remnants of Hurricane Sally, which unleashed torrential rainfall over southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle, are heading into eastern North Carolina.

Beaufort County can expect to see 2 to 3 inches of rain Thursday into Friday, along with a chance of severe thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes, according to the latest update from the National Weather Service Newport/Morehead City.

Low-lying and areas prone to flooding are at risk for flooding. Those heading to the coast this weekend: rip currents and huge surf pose a real threat.
