Above it today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.
We have seen some gusty showers move through the region early this morning. However, in the Charlotte and Triad zones, the airmass never got unstable enough to support severe weather. Some severe storms are possible this morning near the coast, but sunshine is returning in the western and central Piedmont this morning.
It will be a very windy day with gusts of wind out of the west to 30 or 40mph at times. With fairly wet ground conditions, that could bring down some trees, and some sporadic power outages are therefore possible. Temps will be very pleasant with highs in the lower 70s for most.
Tomorrow still looks terrific with sunshine and highs in the lower 70s.
Clouds will increase Sunday with our next chance of rain and storms Sunday night into Monday morning.
Behind that system, a significant blast of cold air will overtake much of the eastern US. For our area, we might not get out of the 40s for highs Tuesday, and we will likely have some frost and freeze issues Tuesday through Thursday mornings. We will then see another chance of showers and maybe some storms Thursday night into Friday.
Everyone enjoy your weekend!
