CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A passing shower or storm is possible tonight into Monday morning. Expect temperatures in the mid/upper 60s by daybreak tomorrow.
Plan on using your umbrella and raincoat this week due to daily shower and storm chances. A storm system rolls into the Carolinas tomorrow bringing a warmer and more tropical air mass. This will spark numerous-to-widespread showers and thunderstorms Monday afternoon through the evening hours.
Severe weather is possible Monday afternoon. The risk for severe storms is low. However, heavy rain, localized flooding, and gusty downburst winds are the primary impacts. There's a lesser risk for a quick spin-up tornado, but the threat is not zero.
Rest of the Week
The scattered showers and storms will continue through most of the week, although even as the humidity ramps up, high temperatures will remain mild in the low-mid 80s. This means more days with below-average temperatures for mid-August. For now, this trend looks to continue through the weekend!
The new United States Drought Monitor was released Thursday, August 11th and paints a similar picture to last week. Drier-than-normal conditions still persist for 44% of North Carolina and 24% of South Carolina.
