Rain and thunderstorms might occur Monday, with some bad weather possible in the afternoon. Potential flooding spreads throughout the week due to more chance of rain coming in the following days.
The temperature sat in the 60s this morning with scattered rain, and it can get heavy at times. Storm opportunities rise for the afternoon and evening, when altitude reaches low 70s in the mountains and upper 70s in Upstate.
While rain and storms will expand, bad weather seems isolated with the threat of floods, heavy hail, destructive winds, and possibly isolated tornadoes.
The threat of flooding will continue for the rest of the week as higher low levels cover our area, allowing periods of rain to continue.
It will also bring cold air that allows altitudes to fall to the 60s to close to 70 degrees on Wednesday, limiting the potential for bad weather mid-week.
The estimate is gradually retreating to only a 20% chance of rain on Saturday as temperatures warm up back to the 80s, with rain pop ups and storms returning in forecasts for Sunday.
Meanwhile in the case of Arthur’s Tropical Storm, continue moving north towards NC Beach.
The best opportunity for tropical storm conditions will be in the Outer Banks of North Carolina today when the eye of the storm approaches, but it is likely to stay offshore only.
Tropical Storm warnings have been issued for the NC coast when 40 mph winds, heavy rain and high waves will occur there. Locally, we don’t expect impacts.
