FIRST ALERT: Storms pass through the Carolinas Friday, rain possible Saturday

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - We still have some areas of rain rolling across the area, but the severe weather threat has ended for the night. Low temps will fall into the upper 40s.

There are dozens of damage reports continuing to flood in. The National Weather Service will determine this weekend where to send survey teams to assess whether the damage was caused be a tornado or straight line winds.

Although things are settling down overnight, we’ll still have a threat for showers (but no severe weather) Saturday, due to the upper level low swinging through the Carolinas on its way out.

So, if you’ve got outdoor plans for the afternoon or evening Saturday, don’t be surprised to encounter some raindrops. It will be quite cool with most areas stuck in the 50s all day long.

Fortunately, by the time Easter Sunday rolls around, we’ll clear out more and warm up as the system moves out for good. However, temps still may struggle to hit 70°, a bit below average, before warming up again into early next week.
