Severe Thunderstorm Alert Just Issued For The Charlotte Region

The Charlotte area is bracing for several days of severe weather, including the potential for strong thunderstorms, damaging winds, and potential hail.

Residents are advised to remain alert as the first wave of storms is forecasted to hit the region after 2 pm today, with Wednesday and Thursday designated as critical days watch the weather across Charlotte and the Carolinas.

  • Wednesday’s Forecast: The Carolinas may experience isolated strong thunderstorms throughout the day, beginning in the western North Carolina mountains and moving east towards the greater Charlotte area.
  • Overnight Storms: A subsequent round of storms is expected to pose threats overnight from late Wednesday into Thursday morning. Residents should ensure their smartphones are not on ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode and keep a NOAA Weather Radio active to stay informed. The primary risks from these storms include damaging wind gusts and hail, though a brief tornado cannot be ruled out.
  • Further Weather Disruptions: Thursday morning could see another round of storms, potentially affecting the morning rush hour. A cold front arriving on Friday may trigger additional showers and storms, but likely not as bad as the storms we’ll see tonight into tomorrow.

Conditions are expected to improve by the weekend, with reduced humidity and cooler temperatures in the 70s, just in time for the final rounds of the Wells Fargo Championship.
