Monday will start cloudy and damp with a few spots of mist and drizzle. The rest of the day will feature mostly cloudy skies and seasonal highs around 66.

The updated Severe weather outlook from the Storm Prediction Center shows a lower threat of severe weather for Tuesday.

However, the chance to see a few severe storms is present from the mountains to the sandhills. The highest severe weather risk lies in east Charlotte and areas east of there.

Damaging winds are the main threat as the line of storms move through the area. However, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Timeline of the strong to severe storms: late morning – early afternoon. 

Today: Mostly cloudy with a high of 66.

Tomorrow: Cloudy with a 70% chance for strong to severe storms. High of 74.

Wednesday: Partly sunny and 69.

Another batch of rain will move in on Friday but clear out just in time for the rest of the weekend. Saturday and Sunday looks GREAT with sunny skies and highs in the 50s.
