A developing storm system and cold front will move out of the southern Plains and east tonight into Friday leading to an increase in clouds and wet end to the week with some showers and thunderstorms Friday into Friday night. Those thunderstorms will be strong to severe with flooding downpours, damaging wind gusts and perhaps an isolated tornado.
17+ million people under an enhanced risk (Category 3) for severe storms on Friday. This includes our entire viewing area, west to the #Triad and #Charlotte. Biggest threat=damaging wind #ncwx pic.twitter.com/uDQdDV1n8m— Don Schwenneker (@BigweatherABC11) April 18, 2019
The upper-level energy with this system will linger over the region on Saturday keeping some clouds around along with a passing shower. It will be a cooler day to start the weekend with highs in the lower 60s.
High pressure will build in for Easter Sunday and Monday resulting in plenty of sunshine. Highs Sunday will approach 70 degrees, then near 80 degrees Monday.
The weather stays quiet into next week.
Have a great Thursday!
