Karen fizzles; storms moving across area

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The strong cold front that had incorporated remnants of what was Tropical Storm Karen has now pushed east of Charlotte, taking the chances of severe weather in the Queen City with it.

The strong system that brought snow to the High Plains and tornadoes to parts of the Midwest will usher in much cooler air behind it.

There is still a concern for localized flooding in eastern parts of the WBTV viewing area, but overall the storms have become much less intense.

Behind the front, a cool, northeasterly breeze on Tuesday will push clouds back into the area and bring a slight chance for showers late Tuesday into early Wednesday, highs both days will be in the 60s.

The rest of the week should be mostly sunny and seasonal with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

We could see clearing in our western counties as early as this afternoon.
