Showers and Storms Tuesday Afternoon
Current setup showing a juicy airmass with temps in the upper 60s to lower 70s across the region. Some areas of patchy fog for the mountain and river valleys. A cold front will bring showers and storms to the area by late morning. The general movement of this line is a little quicker than previously projected, which does bode well for the majority of the area. This will help keep the heavy rain threat moving and also also a smaller portion of the viewing area to be susceptible to any severe threat. Still localized flooding for poor drainage areas a concern with areas south and east of Charlotte under the highest threat for any stronger storms with more time to warm before the line of storms moves through. The biggest threat we will see will be damaging wind gusts, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. A bit warmer for Wednesday with more sunshine in the forecast. Highs will reach the low 70s. Temps will reach the upper 70s Thursday before a dry cold front brings cooler and drier weather to the region for the weekend. Temps won’t get out of the 60s with overnight lows tumbling to the 40s.
