Weekend Weather Update

Scattered strong thunderstorms developed Saturday evening across parts of North Carolina, but most of the Triangle and Sandhills missed out on the stronger storms. In fact, some parts of our area missed out on the rain all together. The strongest storms affected Charlotte and the Triad. The National Weather Service reported some minor flooding and trees down around Winston-Salem. Wind damage, hail, and intense lightning was also reported around Charlotte.

Some of the showers with a few embedded thunderstorms will continue across the News 14 Carolina viewing area through the early morning hours Sunday.

The showers and storms from Saturday formed ahead of a cold front moving toward the state. That front will be slow to move through North Carolina, so it is likely to be hanging around Sunday afternoon. That could be the focus for more storms from midday through the afternoon Sunday. Stay with News 14 Carolina for the latest on your weekend forecast.
