Flood & Storm Threats

Moderate to heavy rainfall continues this morning, with thunderstorms expected this afternoon. There will be enough energy within the system to produce a few strong thunderstorms, but the severe threat should be limited to areas south and east of the I-85 line. Any severe storm that pops up could bring damaging wind, small hail, frequent lighting, and a possibility for an isolated tornado. Right now, the severe threat looks relatively low, though most of our region will see thunderstorms. Highs reach the 50s to low 60s.

There is a Flood Watch in effect until 6pm for the mountains of Greenville, Pickens, & Oconee counties, as well as Stephens county in NE Georgia. In Western NC, Graham, Swain, Jackson, Macon, Transylvania, and Henderson counties also are under a Flood Watch until 6pm.

Overnight, showers will continue, and a few will linger into Tuesday as well. Later this week, sunshine returns with temperatures moving from the 60s back into the 70s.

    Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
