New Tornado Watch

We're continuing to monitor storms moving across the South tonight. A new tornado watch has been issued well west of the Triangle and includes Charlotte. Conditions are beginning to slowly deteriorate in South Carolina, but radar trends are only showing heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms. One could say storms are weakening a bit as they move in this direction, but keep in mind much of this area is not yet unstable. That part of the equation is ongoing at the moment. Most of the rich moisture (Dew Points of 60 or higher) are still in central parts of South Carolina and North Georgia and advecting in this direction.
