Isolated storms possible Friday afternoon

Friday afternoon update: The Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of Central NC in a slight risk category for strong to severe storms. Your Weather on the Ones forecast center is monitoring for any developing storms that have the potential to produce damaging winds, large hail and / or frequent lightning. Check with us throughout the afternoon for updates.

Our current weather setup includes a good deal of moisture in the air and some sunshine, which is creating instability this afternoon. Pair that up with a passing upper-level disturbance and that will take this air and lift it vigorously, giving us that possibility for storms to develop. The threat diminishes after sunset tonight, so you'll still be able to partake of your outdoor plans as you kick off your weekend.

Saturday and Sunday we will have a better chance of seeing some scattered showers and storms as a cold front to our north settles over the northern portion of our state. Temperatures will remain warm, highs in the low to mid 80s, lows in the low to mid 60s.

As far as next week, we're still looking at an unsettled weather pattern with a possibility of showers or storms each day and highs in the low to mid 80s.

I dodged the highly localized nearly tropical downpours yesterday until about 6 when I left work for dinner. I blamed my soaked shirt on Joshua. We'll need a reprieve from those downpours while I'm at the lake this afternoon.
