We had not planned on doing another update until around Thursday but this situation warrants immediate broadcast. We warned about this possibility to members last Friday and now it seems that we could have some organized clusters of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. I am posting this map update for both members and non-members due to the immediate nature of this threat. The main threat will be from damaging high winds with any storm today but it must be noted that some isolated tornadoes are also possible.
The culprit is a very strong cold front meeting up with Gulf moisture and the right exit region of the jet stream. Also, an upper level low will move across Georgia and the Carolina’s during the next 12-18 hours and will increase the instability with moist dew-points to the south and an influx of Gulf moisture. Adding to the threat is a negatively tilted trough over the Eastern US. The latest weather data shows Western NC, South-Central NC and Northern SC with the greatest threat of severe storms. Please be very weather aware and keep your weather radios on.
