First Alert Weather Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

* First Alert Day Today
* Potential Severe Storms
* Great Weekend Follows

A strong cold front is poised to march across the Carolinas today, bringing more widespread and organized storms for the end the week. That is why today has been designated as a First Alert Day. Storms move into the mountains mid-late afternoon, working their way down to the 77 corridor by early evening, perhaps right in time for the evening rush.

There could be additional downpours or rumbles of thunder overnight, but gusty strong or severe storms would be more likely with the evening wave.

The system departs overnight and pulls away into Saturday, with gradual clearing to follow into Saturday morning.

Behind this front, not only do temperatures ease back for the upcoming weekend, but so does the humidity! Weekend temperatures will slide back into the mid 80s with dew points falling into the upper 50s by Sunday.

And for the first time in a long time, we have only 80s on the 7-day forecast!

Enjoy!
