The morning commute will be soggy and more thunderstorms are in the forecast for this afternoon.
There was record rainfall Monday at PTI, with 1.47 inches in the rain gauge. Hail and damaging winds occurred across the Piedmont as well. A cold front is crossing the state today and the Storm Prediction Center has most of central North Carolina at a slight risk of severe thunderstorms. The same threats (hail and wind) will apply for this afternoon, generally between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. High temperatures will hover close to 80 degrees.
Tonight, the weather becomes much calmer with lows in the mid-50s by Wednesday morning. Skies will be partly cloudy through the day and the umbrella can get a rest. Highs are expected to remain in the lower-70’s.
A second cold front is set to arrive Thursday, bringing a cool shot of air to the Piedmont. Highs will only be in the mid-60s and skies are probably going to be mostly cloudy for most of the day. Scattered showers will be brief, but still pesky enough to warrant an umbrella.
It’s smooth sailing for Friday, Saturday and Sunday! The forecast is dry and comfortable and highs will be slow to warm up: Friday – 70 degrees, Saturday – 76 degrees, Sunday – 79 degrees.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is Saturday night in Winston-Salem! Come out to support Cindy’s Team and the fight to find a cure for breast cancer. This year is different in a really neat way — it’s at night! Folks will gather at 6 pm. to register and enjoy some music and friendship, then the 5k walk/run begins at 8 p.m. Temperatures will be great, in the lower- to mid-70s and the sunset will be stunning under partly cloudy skies. We look forward to seeing you!
