Today looks to be a wonderful day, unless you have allergies! Right now, tree pollen count is very high and will continue to be until we get some rain to clear it out.
The good news is that rain is in the forecast. The bad news is that we will have to watch out for severe weather. Rain will be moving into our area Thursday evening, and it is likely that a line of storms could make their way into our area early Friday morning. The storm that will bring rain to the Carolinas is currently dumping feet of snow in Colorado. Many places in Colorado experienced temperatures in the 70’s and are experiencing snow (as shown in the picture below) a day later!
This potent spring storm is also doing something very rare; it’s producing lots of Thundersnow!
Tonight, if you are lucky, you can track live storm-chasers who will be chasing tornadoes and Thundersnow. Tune into https://tvnweather.com/live to check it out.
Now to weather in the Carolinas! This storm system will move off to our north, but we will still have to deal with the cold front that will sweep across our area Thursday night with lingering showers Friday morning.
As far as the severe weather threat goes, my biggest concern will be for strong winds. However, if you are planning to be to west of the Carolinas on Thursday, please stay alert for severe weather. Strong storms with hail, strong winds, and even an isolated tornado could be possible.
