A slow moving cold front will bring showers and storms across the Carolinas for Wednesday and lasting through the end of the week.
A slow moving cold front is draped across the middle of the country. At the surface, warm and unstable air from the Gulf of Mexico will move northward into the southeast United States.
Showers and storms are expected to develop, especially across the mountains, foothills, and western piedmont Wednesday. Locally heavy rain is the greatest threat with these storms; however, a few severe storms are possible with damaging winds and large hail.
The cold front will move slowly across the Carolinas, so showers and storms remain likely through Friday. Nearly everyone has a 50-70% chance of showers and storms on Thursday with the front located in the mountains of NC. Friday, the front shifts towards the piedmont, so the best chance will be in the piedmont and coastal areas.
1-2 inches of rain is likely across the mountains and parts of the foothills. Piedmont and coastal areas are expected to see around an inch of rain. Higher amounts are expected where the heaviest thunderstorms develop.
