Storm Team 11: Developing showers and storms this afternoon, severe storm threat shifting east


Rain and Storms 

Showers and storms will be developing early this afternoon with rain becoming widespread today. Instability will be the limiting factor in our severe weather threat. The greatest risk for severe storms looks to set-up on the other side of the Blue Ridge where more daytime heating will have the chance to make the atmosphere for more unstable and more conducive for damaging winds in N.C. and V.A.

Early to mid afternoon will be the best time for showers and storms.   

Storm threat ends mid to late this afternoon.

Cloudy and Cool Tuesday 

Given a temperature inversion in place, we will stay cloudy and chilly Tuesday with most areas in the low to mid 50s in the Tri-Cities and 40s in the mountains. There could be some freezing temperatures in the higher elevations Tuesday night. 

Wet and Cool this Week 

A low-pressure system is coming Thursday which means a cloudy and cool set-up along with rain likely Thursday and Friday. Lingering scattered shower can be expected into Saturday.  

Weekend Outlook 

Expect a cloudy and cool Saturday with scattered showers and highs in the mid to upper 50s. Clearing conditions means a brighter Sunday.  

Fall Color Change 

After reaching peak color in many areas, incoming rain and wind will begin to strip the color away this week. Tri-Cities can still expect some colorful conditions this week, but the rain and windy conditions are not going to be ideal for fall color. More details are here
