CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

After a week of active weather, we saw a break from storms Friday evening, but activity looks to ramp back up for the afternoon and evening hours Saturday with a front on the way.

The front will provide the trigger for more organized storm development as it moves into a hot, humid and unstable air mass Saturday afternoon. 

Prior to the storms, it will be another day with temps in the low 90s and high humidity. Then, storms will begin to form a line working NW to SE during the afternoon and early evening hours.

The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded a large chunk of our region to a slight risk for severe weather (area in yellow on attached image), which means scattered severe storms are possible.

Be sure to stay aware of the weather Saturday evening, especially if you'll be outside, because not only could storms be disruptive to outdoor plans, but also potentially dangerous with frequent lightning and gusty winds.

Following the frontal passage, some slightly less humid air will try to work itself in Sunday, which will bring a nice end to the weekend.
