Severe weather threat diminishes, scattered storms through tomorrow
Latest from Van Denton:
SPC (Storm Prediction Center) has removed our coverage area from the Slight Risk. Still we have the potential for a strong thunderstorm and even a small potential for a tornadic cell.
Our odds are much lower but they are not zero. Right now there is a storm over NE Guilford, NW Alamance, SE Rockingham and Caswell county. This is lifting NE and there is still a good deal of wind shear today and all thunderstorms must be watched closely.
Warmer weather has now reached the Piedmont, but the energy with the storms is mostly focused in eastern North and South Carolina.
This complex of storms is actually limiting activity to the west over the Piedmont. The cold front is still approaching from the west.
It is currently entering eastern Tennessee and will move across the Piedmont early tomorrow morning.
This front should produce some of its own showers and thunderstorms, however, the threat of severe thunderstorms is not as great tonight as it approaches.
Tomorrow most of the activity will be focused in the eastern half of the state again. We should be behind the cold front with drier and more stable air pushing into the area.
There may be a shower, possibly thunderstorm before lunch as the front slides through and to our east.
Behind this front pleasant and nice weather returns for Friday through early next week.
