CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Severe weather today could bring a risk strong and severe thunderstorms, with a few isolated tornadoes south and southeast of the Charlotte area.
Look for periods of rain, heavy at times. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s across the region today. Winds in the strong storms could be over fifty mph.
WHEN:The main time frame is from 2-8 PM this afternoon and early evening. After that there is a chance for one more round of rain but likely this will not be as strong as the storms arriving at the peak of the daytime heating.
WHERE:From Charlotte and the I-85 to towns and cities south and west of that line. Right now our South Carolina counties and SE NE Carolina Counties (Union, Anson and Richmond) have the best chance for strong to severe storms.
WHAT:Strong damaging winds but also a chance for tornadoes. Damaging winds and downed trees will be the highest concern. Flash flooding is more of a threat to the south of the Charlotte area.
