The Piedmont Triad braces for severe storms

WATCH: North Carolina braces for extreme weather



METEOROLOGIST ELAINE POPE NOW. WE ARE WAITING FOR A SEVERE TIME AND PEOPLE REALLY NEED TO BE CAREFUL. TO YOUR FORECASTS AND ESPECIALLY WITH WHAT THE WEATHER TEAM WILL SAY TOMORROW BECAUSE WE COULD ALSO SEE SOME WATCHES AND WARNINGS. OH, ABSOLUTELY AND MAYBE EVEN A TORNADO WATCH ISSUED FOR OUR AREA. THEY ARE DEFINITELY TREATED IN THE DEEP SOUTH TODAY. WE HAVE CLOUDS IN THE AREA AND ACTUALLY COOLER TEMPERATURES THAN I EXPECTED. WE ARE IN THE 1950s RIGHT NOW. THIS CAN BE A GOOD THING AND IT IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT I WILL LOOK VERY CLOSE. THE REST OF OUR TEAM BRIAN JACKLIN AND MICHELLE WILL MAKE IT SO YOUR FORECAST TOMORROW TEMPERATURES IN THE MID-1950s RIGHT NOW WITH THE WARMEST AIR. AT LEAST IN THE WEST FOR THE MOMENT. THE WINDS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FROM THE EAST WHICH KEPT THESE TEMPERATURES A LITTLE DROP. IT HAS KEPT THE GRAY SKY HERE AND ALSO NOW JUST A LITTLE LIGHT RAIN TO SAVE NOTHING YOU MAY BE WORRIED FOR TONIGHT AND EVEN OVERNIGHT. I THINK IT IS JUST HEAVIER SHOWERS THAT GROW AS THESE SHOWERS ARE ALREADY STARTING TO MAKE THEIR PATH TOWARDS ASHEVILLE AND THE GREENVILLE SPARTANBURG AREA NOTE THAT THE COOL AIR CORNER WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS YEAR. IT IS IN PLACE AND WE NEED TO LOOK FAR SOUTHWEST WHERE WE FIND THE WARMTH AND INSTABILITY AND THE OTHER STATE OF THIS EAST WARM FRONT WESTERN SEVERE WEATHER ACTIVE SO WE WILL MONITOR THE POSITION OF THIS A FRONT THAT SHOULD ELIMINATE NORTHWARD IN THE TRIAD TOMORROW IF WE ARE FROM THE SOUTHERN TECH OF THIS FRONT, WE WILL HAVE TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 60’s, AND WE WILL BE VERY UNSTABLE IF WE STAY A LITTLE COOLER NORTH , POSSIBLY LESS INTENSE THUNDERSTORMS ARE DEVELOPING. THEY DEFINITELY HAVE AN INTENSE TIME HERE. GENERALLY WHEN I SEE RED AND PURPLE WHICH IS A SEVERE GENERAL OUTBREAK OF THE STORM PREDICTION CENTER AND THEY ALREADY HAVE MORE THAN 10 TORNADO REPORTED IN MISSISSIPPI, ALABAMA, ARKANSAS AND LOUISIANA, NOW THEY ARE IN THIS HIGH THREAT LEVEL THE LEVEL FOUR MODERATE WELL IS A CROSSROAD OF NORTH CAROLINA AND CENTRAL EAST AND CENTRAL TOMORROW AND IS SUPPORTED EVEN IN OUR COMMUNITIES IN THE EASTERN TRIBE OF ALAMANCE COUNTIES , RANDOLPH GUILFORD AND DAVIDSON FOR A MODERATE. RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER WE EXPECT THUNDERSTORMS DAMAGE. WHEN IS THE BIGGEST THREAT BUT WE MAY ALSO HAVE TORNADOES FROM THERE SO WE ARE WATCHING CLOSE THAT THE PROBABILITY OF A TORNADO AT 10% LIKELY DOESN’T SEEM TO BE HIGH. BUT WHEN I SEE SOMETHING MORE THAN 5% AND I HAVE REALLY NEVER SEEN ANYTHING OVER 15 IN OUR AREA DEFINITELY GET MY INTEREST ENHANCED AS WE CAN SEE SOME ROTARY CELLS DEVELOPING. IT SEEMS THAT IT IS MORE LIKELY A LITTLE FURTHER EAST AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE IN THIS HIGHER THREAT AREA. WE TALKED TO YOU ABOUT W IS YOUR SR PLACE. I KNOW THAT MANY OF YOU WORK FROM HOME REMEMBER THE INTERIOR PARTS ARE ON THE LOWEST FLOOR AND IF YOU HAVE A BASEMENT IT IS EVEN BETTER IN THE BASEMENT BE SURE TO PROTECT YOUR HEAD WITH BLANKETS AND PILLOWS IF GOING TO THE BATHROOM GET INTO THE TUB. THIS IS TRUE FOR TORNADOES. AND WIND OVERNIGHT THE RAIN IS COMING INTO OUR AREA YOU WAKE UP WITH A STABLE RAIN TOMORROW. AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS WE ARE WAITING FOR THIS HOT OPINION. IT’S LUNCH TIME AND WE ARE STILL ABOUT 50 DEGREES. THIS IS OK IF IT REALLY HELPES US, BUT WE’LL LIKELY SEE A LITTLE LATE AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES COULD GET A BROKEN SKY WITH A LITTLE SUN AND THEN WE GO TO SEE THESE DISCREET CELLS SOMEWHAT APPEARING IN THE CENTRAL AND EAST OF NORTH CAROLINA, EVERYTHING BETWEEN LUNCH TIME IS KNOWN UP TO SIX OR SEVEN HOURS AS LATER AS ANY OF THE DEVELOPING STORMS COULD BECOME SEVERE IN OUR AREA. SO THIS IS NOT ONE OF THESE SITUATIONS WHERE WE HAVE A LINE CROSSING BUT WEATHER THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP IN THE AFTERNOON HEAT AND INSTABILITY AS WELL AS TEMPERATURES IN THE HIGHER 60S TOMORROW WINDS NEVER , AND YES, THE RAIN MAY DIMINISH IN THE AFTERNOON, BUT THAT IS WHEN THE RISK OF A STORM INCREASES. RAIN IN THE MORNING THUNDERSTORM SINGING IN THE AFTERNOON WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S. WE HAVE THIS RED ALERT ICN FOR THE TRIAD BECAUSE YOU ARE IN THIS ENHANCED AND MODERATE SEVERE WEATHER RISK FOR THE MOUNTAINS. TEMPERATURES ARE IN THE LOW 60S. IT’S STILL WINDY. THERE IS A RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS IN THE MOUNTAINS. THEY WILL BE MORE INSULATED AND LESS INTENSE. HERE IS YOUR SEVEN DAY FORECAST BEHIND THE AIR IS MUCH COLDER. WE HAVE THE FREEZIN
