Big weather changes

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.
Hope you had a lovely weekend, but the nice spring weather is about to change.  Eric Thomas is tracking a large storm system out of the Gulf which could affect us for days, possibly through next weekend and threaten the All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  You’ll want to tune in to get his latest First Alert Forecast at 11:00.
Did you see the massive flames from a house fire in northwest Charlotte today?  The structure went up like a match on flint.  The only person in the house at the time of the fire got out without incident.
A warning tonight about shopping for trees or shrubs at your local home store—a Lowe’s employee was bitten by a 4-and-a-half-foot copperhead snake at the Denver store.  We’re asking about the employee’s condition.
Something you don’t see every day—a woman driving her bass boat on a trailer through a car wash in Statesville.  When she came out the other side, she caused $3,000 of damage.
When Oprah Winfrey was in town this weekend at JC Smith’s commencement ceremony, her long-time boyfriend Stedman forgot his shoe.  A size 15 shoe—hard to find.  No problem, Oprah called Cam Newton and he lent out his size 14’s.  Thanks, Cam. 
Please join Molly Grantham, Eric Thomas, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00 tonight!
