Tornado Watch issued for multiple Piedmont counties including Surry, Davie

A Tornado Watch expired around 1 a.m. Monday for Alleghany, Wilkes, Surry, Yadkin, Davie, Iredell, and Rowan counties.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook and thunderstorms were scattered overnight.

A strong cold front will move across the state on Monday and bring strong to severe thunderstorms to eastern North Carolina.

For the Piedmont on Monday afternoon, look for partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A northwest wind will help to bring in drier, less humid air.

Tornado Watches are issued when weather conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms.
