Big Storm Brewing

A big storm is brewing this Friday that will impact much of the United States from today through the weekend and into early next week.

Today the storm is producing snow in Colorado, rain in Oklahoma, and severe weather is likely from East Texas into Louisiana and Arkansas. In fact, a fairly significant severe weather outbreak is a possibility late this afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has placed part of that area under a "moderate risk" for severe weather.

On Saturday that "moderate risk" of severe weather shifts to parts of the Southeast --

Tornadoes, hail, and damaging thunderstorm winds are possible within the moderate risk areas both Friday and Saturday.

The storm system will then move toward the Carolinas bringing us rain late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. While the risk for severe weather is not nearly as high for us, a few strong storms cannot be ruled out. We'll follow the storm through the weekend and have the latest with Weather on the Ones updates on News 14 Carolina. When you are away from your TV this weekend, you can find updates here on our weather blog and on our website at
