Scattered showers and storms will continue across the region this Saturday afternoon. Our entire region is currently under a Marginal Risk for severe weather this afternoon. Any storm that becomes severe poses the main threat of damaging winds. However, some hail will also be possible. Heavy downpours could lead to some localized flooding.
A cold front slowly approaching from the west is triggering scattered showers and storms out ahead of it this weekend. The front is expected to work its way southward across the area Sunday. Scattered showers and storms are expected, especially along and south of U.S. 460. While heavy rain is likely with Sunday’s storms, the storms are not expected to be as intense.
Other than the chance for storms Sunday, it will be somewhat cooler. Temperatures will climb into the low and mid 80s versus the 90s.
The front continues southward into North Carolina Monday with a few showers and storms possible south of U.S. 460 Monday morning. During the afternoon, there’s a chance for a storm or two, mainly east of HWY 29.
Tuesday and Wednesday look dry for now with highs in the 80s.
