Flash flooding threat remains as heavy downpours, storms back in the forecast

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

WBTV Meteorologist Al Conklin says a weak and slow-moving frontal boundary will likely trigger another round of widespread thunderstorms Thursday.  

This front will shift into the coastal plain on Friday and over the weekend which will take the bulk of storms with it, but unstable air in the wake of this front will still be enough to spawn scattered storms for much of the weekend.

The biggest threat Thursday will be heavy downpours across the region, Conklin says.

The ground, already saturated from Wednesday's storms, won't need much water before it begins to puddle.

Winds knocked down power lines near Belmont yesterday and damaged a post office.

Warm and humid conditions will persist, but nothing unusual for this time of the year, Conklin says.
