Good Monday afternoon, we continue to monitor for the potential of severe weather later today and into tonight. In the past hour a Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for a large section of North Carolina until 10 pm. The Watch does include all eight counties in the Foothills Weather Network Coverage area.
Strong damaging winds of 60+ mph are possible inside the Watch area from any storms that may impact the region later today. Large hail, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall is possible as well..
Storms could impact the region in multiple segments, we currently have a cluster of storms across East Tennessee that will move into the Western Carolinas by 3 pm or so…another round may occur during the early evening hours and a third cluster of storms has the potential to impact parts of the area late tonight…
Please remain Weather Aware over the next 12 hours as severe weather could threaten your community. We will provide updates here at our website and on social media!
