Thunderstorm Coverage Peaks This Afternoon, Less Humid Air Moves In For Tuesday

Good Monday morning, a frontal boundary is impacting the region today. We already have some rain showers this morning across the Foothills.

Our front will continue to slowly move Southeast today and dependent on how much instability we have, thunderstorms will form this afternoon and early this evening.

There is not a ton of dynamics associated with this front, therefor severe weather potential should be isolated in nature. Locally heavy rainfall and lightning will be the biggest threats.

Storm activity should begin to end by mid to late evening across the region, the front will usher less humid air into North Carolina overnight tonight and into Tuesday. We feel quite confident the less humid air will make it to interstate 40 but we’re not sure if it will make a clean passage through the South Carolina state line as the steering flow is not very strong. Regardless, Tuesday should result in less coverage of precipitation.
