Scattered showers and storms will likely fire around the Carolinas later this afternoon into early this evening. The SPC has the area in a 'slight' risk of severe weather for the period.
The overall setup is fairly diffuse. An upper level disturbance is approaching from the west. There is a cold front off to our northwest, and there are some residual outflow boundaries scattered across the Carolinas.
Highs today should warm into the loo to mid 80s, and with dewpoints in the upper 50s to lower 60s, the atmosphere should become relatively unstable.
As the upper level disturbance approaches, shower and storm chances should be enhanced along those outflow boundaries. Exactly where that will be is tough to tell in advance.
