The work week in the Piedmont will begin and end with showers and thunderstorms.
A slow-moving cold front will move into muggy air that is building across the Piedmont. So, for your Monday look for scattered showers with a good chance for thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening.
Any thunderstorm that forms on Monday could contain damaging wind gusts and some hail. While strong winds and hail are the main weather concerns, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. We must be weather-aware from 2 p.m. Monday to midnight.
