Isolated Strong to Severe Storms Tuesday Afternoon
A cold front is inching closer to the Carolinas this morning. Scattered showers and isolated strong to severe storms will be possible along this line by mid-afternoon. Overall looking at a disorganized picture in terms of any widespread or long-lasting severe weather. However, with the timing of this line now moving near the I-85 stretch by mid to late afternoon, we will have more opportunity with adequate instability and shear to see a stronger storm, or two develop with damaging wind gusts being the primary threat.
WHAT: Cold front bringing scattered showers and storms – one or two of these could become severe.
THREATS: Damaging Wind Gusts, Quarter Sized Hail
WHEN: 2PM – 7PM Tuesday
WHERE: Piedmont, Generally south and east of I-85
After this front passes, a cooler and drier air mass will set up shop. Breezy, especially across the mountains. This will likely keep frost from developing in the high country where temps will fall into the mid-30s overnight. Highs will be noticeably cooler Wednesday, but just a few degrees below average – reaching the low 70s. Dry and mild through the end of the week with a more unsettled outlook taking shape for our weekend.
