Our next weather system is a very powerful one that is currently bringing strong storms to Louisiana and Mississippi. As this system tracks eastward, it brings the potential for severe weather to the Carolinas. The system will be weaker once it arrives to our area, but there is still a low risk. Day 2 from the Storm Prediction Center has the WCCB Charlotte area under a Slight Risk (level 2 of 5) – this is for Wednesday. The only area not under this risk is the Mountains where there is a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5 (see threats below)).
Increasing clouds. A very mild evening as we only bottom out in the upper 50s.
Widespread showers with possible isolated strong storms.
TIMING: Late morning through early evening.
IMPACTS: Damaging wind, localized flooding and isolated tornadoes all possible.
Be sure you stay up to date on this threat and have at least two ways to receive warnings.
Scattered showers. Highs will top out in the upper 60s.
Mostly sunny skies. Highs in the mid 60s.
Drier and cooler weekend with high temperatures near 60 both Saturday and Sunday.
Have a great week!
