Scattered showers and storms through the weekend...

>> Friday, August 12, 2011

A big-time round of storms developed early Thursday afternoon in the foothills, then spread southeast into the Piedmont. The CLT metro area had much of the worst of the storms with some localized flash flooding, wind damage, and hail.

The cooler regime has settled in, and most spots in the region will have highs in the mid to upper 80s today into the weekend. Today and tomorrow will feature scattered showers and storms. Then on Sunday, our next cold front will be nearing, and I anticipate a good coverage of storms. Some storms could be severe at times the next few days.

Behind that front, the weather still looks nice for a large portion of next work week. There might be a few lingering showers or storms Monday underneath a big upper trough, but Tuesday and Wednesday look fantastic with 80s for highs, lows well down into the 60s, and low humidity.


Two tropical waves in the eastern Atlantic need watching. The lead wave (92L) will likely wind up curving north in the Atlantic before it could threaten the US. The second wave (93L) looks to take a farther south track, and that alone increases the overall chance of an eventual US threat.

I discuss these waves in today's video, and of course we will continue to update you on News 14 Carolina in our Tropical Updates at :21 and :51 past the hour. Lots of information is also available on the Tropical Weather portion of this site.

Kind of glad that the big rains so far today have stayed out of the Clt Metro area, especially given the chance of some rain over the weekend. I've heard Union though has had upwards of 3 inches of rain.
