Stormy Start to Workweek

We'll have to watch out for strong storms mainly west of the Metro on Tuesday.

Tornado warnings roared through the Metro this Monday afternoon, but things look much better for the evening and overnight. Mild and muggy conditions stick around tonight, with lows in the sticky 50s and 60s as clouds continue to dominate the Carolina sky. While this round is largely over and done with, we’re not quite in the clear just yet. Another round of strong storms may move in for our Tuesday, although it shouldn’t be as widespread as what we saw for our Monday.

It looks like the best chance for rain will be west of the Metro, but scattered cells could pop up across the board for the second day of the workweek. The main threats will be the usual suspects: rain and wind, but the isolated spin-up tornado threat is there, as well. The third round of storms sweeps in on Wednesday in the form of a cold front. The front will flush out much of the moisture and heat for the back half of the week, as we’ll be talking about sunny skies and comfier highs in the 60s and 70s Thursday through Saturday.
