Above is the Day 2 (Saturday) convective outlook from the SPC.
I am out of the weather office until Tuesday morning, but a quick post on the shower and storm potential tomorrow.
Below is a panel from the 6z GFS and 0z European....both in pretty good agreement showing the good chance of showers and storms tomorrow afternoon and evening. There will be enough instability and dynamics around for the chance of strong and severe storms. Hail and winds will be the main threats, but an isolated tornado or two is also possible.

Fantastic weather today with sun and highs in the 70s. However, a 'back door' cold front will present some forecast challenges, especially for Saturday's forecast. See the video for more....

It was a frosty start to our Wednesday with Piedmont lows well down into the 30s...even dipping below freezing in some spots. However, temps will rebound into the 60s today and 70s tomorrow under a sunny sky.
In today's edition of the video, I take one more look back at the storm report map from Monday and Monday night, and look ahead at the weekend and our next couple of shower and storm chances.

A few radar images from this morning....
First, a reflectivity and velocity image from the storm that prompted the tornado warning in NE Davidson and Guilford counties. This is a 'comma head' signature....often times associated with brief tornadoes.
And here is an image as the storms were blowing into Cabarrus county....a wind gust of over 90mph was reported with this storm.
What a rough night. Almost every square inch of the region went under a severe thunderstorms warning last night, and a couple of tornado warnings were issued. Tons of wind damage reports have come in, and a lot of trees have unfortunately fallen on homes and automobiles.
Here is today's edition of the video....I recap the severe weather event and look ahead....
