Isolated Strong Storms Possible Tuesday – Stay Weather Aware!

Stay Weather Aware on Tuesday as a Cold Front Brings the Potential For Isolated Strong Storms

A cold front is going to meet an upper-level low pressure and bring not only rain to the Carolinas but an isolated risk for strong to severe storms as well.

Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5) for strong to severe storms on Tuesday for areas southeast of I-85. All modes of severe weather are possible, but isolated minor flooding, damaging winds, and a brief tornado will be the primary threats.

TIMING: The squall line (line of thunderstorms) is expected to punch across the WCCB area Tuesday afternoon into early evening – this is the line that will bring us the risk for severe weather. The upper-level low will move over the Charlotte area through the second half of the day on Tuesday which will bring numerous showers through Tuesday evening.

THREATS: Minor isolated flash flooding, damaging wind, and a brief tornado all possible.

Be sure you stay weather aware through the day on Tuesday and have at least two ways to receives warnings.
