The Triad’s risk for severe weather on Christmas Eve has increased as of Thursday morning.
“This front is very strong,” says FOX8 Max Weather Center’s Kate Garner. “Our threat levels have increased.”
Gusts could reach 40 mph. There is also a chance for an isolated tornado. Watch for downed trees and isolated flooding of roads, creeks and streams.
Christmas Eve night will be rainy, windy and cold.
The low will be around 25 but the windchill will make it feel like it is in the teens Thursday night and early Christmas Day.
The stormy weather should clear the area early Friday morning, and we expect a sunny and breezy Christmas Day with a high around 34.
