  • National Weather Service  NOAA

Lows tonight will range from the low 40s north, to near 50° south, with an east wind 10-15 miles per hour. Highs will warm to 80 in the Upstate and 75 for the mountains. The timing of this system needs to be watched as we could see a few strong to severe thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening. Outside of the heavy rainfall, there will be a threat for damaging winds and an isolated tornado.

While the overall number of severe weather events were below average a year ago, severe thunderstorms, flash flooding, and tornadoes were still responsible for five deaths and over $220 million in damages across the state of MI.

Wind gusts on the order of 30 to 35 miles per hour will be quite common across the area tomorrow, and a wind advisory will likely be issued.


This notable risk for severe weather is why we have a First Alert Weather Day in place for this Friday afternoon and evening.

If you spent a summer day at the riverfront or the beach, you'd probably apply sunscreen, right?

Spring-like warmth will continue to move into the Carolinas Saturday and Sunday with daytime temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Storms remain well to our west Friday night, but we'll have to keep an eye on Saturday morning. There is also a marginal risk for some severe weather. By Saturday the humidity will rise and there will be a good chance for thunderstorms on Sunday. In any event, Sunday will be a First Alert Weather Day. You can also see our DVR option. We will enjoy a nice warming trend over the latter half of the week. Expect cooler temperatures with weekend highs in the 50s and 60s.
