Monday Evening 2.3 Version Update; Hurricane Michael Strengthens. Heavy Rain and Gusty Winds To Affect Western NC Foothills Later This Week.

Good Monday Evening. Impacts to Western North Carolina have come up just a little bit as Michael has trended west in the models today. The new Hurricane Center Track takes the storm pretty much up I-85. This keeps our area on the Northwest side though so the tornado threat will remain low. However prolonged Southeast flow from Tuesday Night through Thursday Night will likely yield some flash flooding across Western North Carolina. At this time no change with the rainfall total forecast though.
