In today's video, I take a look at at the tragic multi-day severe weather event and a look at what's ahead this week....

All these horrific tornadoes show us that NC is in no way protected from Tornadoes, a common myth here. Sure the mountains can shield us from some severe weather events. And we don't get the giant EF5's that the midwest sees. But we have had our share of tornadoes. Back in 1989 it was the Charlotte and Triad that got pounded. Makes me wonder back in the 80's there seemed to be a lot more tornado events in the state. 1984,1988, and the 1989 outbreaks. I wonder if we are heading into a pattern like that here. We have had a lot more severe weather here this spring, then I remember in a long time. And May is normally are prime tornado month here. All I know is if a 1989 style outbreak stuck here again it would be a lot more devastating. I know that you didn't live here then, but do you have any kind of records from what the setup was that day?

Thanks for all you do!

May God bless!!

Here are the upper air maps from May 5, 1989.

CLT temps topped out in the mid 70s with dewpoints in the mid 60s prior to the storms arriving.

God bless you as well....
