There is a threat of severe weather this afternoon and a Tornado Watch has been issued for Davie and Iredell counties until 8 p.m.

The Storm Prediction Center has central and eastern North Carolina in the Enhanced Risk category for thunderstorms that could produce damaging winds and/or large hail.

Expect a warm, muggy Monday with quiet weather for the first half of the day.  By afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will be developing, possibly as two distinct lines, ahead of an approaching cold front.  The best time estimate for severe weather in the FOX8 viewing area will be between 2 pm (west) and 8 p.m. (east).  High temperatures will be in the upper-70s this afternoon and southwest winds will be gusty, between 15 and 20 mph.

Overnight, the rain will end and skies will begin to clear out.  Winds diminish as well, so temperatures are expected to be cooler and in the lower-50s by daybreak.

Tuesday is going to be cooler, with highs in the upper-60s and mostly sunny skies.  The rest of the work week is going to be quiet, with mild temperatures and very low chances of rain.
