Storms, heavy rain possible today and tonight

Warm and humid today strong to severe thunderstorm in the area this evening

That's a far cry from the weather that quickly ripped a large chunk of upstate on Monday. Thursday is turning out to be quite lovely along with the rest of the week and weekend!

Thursday through Sunday will be ideal with no threat of rain and comfortable temperatures.

The work week is starting out where this past weekend's weather left off: warm and sticky. The storms will move off the coast before sunrise Tuesday morning.

Damaging wind gusts and hail are the main threats.

While I am not expecting a widespread severe outbreak, if you have plans this evening, make sure you have access to a strong umbrella - one that can withstand winds because chances are that you may need it. It might get a bit humid and sticky by Monday afternoon. The forecast calls for a low of 65 degrees with a 60 percent chance for precipitation Monday night.

The Storm Prediction Center has put all of the Midlands under a "marginal risk" for severe weather early in the week.

Rain isn't likely before 9PM...but we could experience a few showers by Midnight.

-Impacts: The biggest concerns, as usual, will be torrential rain and strong winds.

De Gea has 13 league clean sheets this season, which is tied for the league lead with Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois and Tottenham's Hugo Lloris.

During a severe thunderstorm warning you may be drawn to the windows to watch the lightning. "However, the wind profiles do show that there could be some spin-up tornados right along the boundary, along the severe line, as it goes through", Mitchell told WBFO. For that reason, Thursday has been designated a Weather Aware day since there may be a risk of severe storms as the system moves through.

The bad news is that the gorgeous weather is coming to an end. More energy potentially lends toward stronger, more organized storms. As the atmosphere cools down in the evening, it loses a lot of energy from daytime heating. Be alert and ready to take action if warnings are issued.

"From the homeowner's perspective, you lose your home and it doesn't matter if it was a microburst, or a tornado or even a single family fire, something like that, it's devastating for that family", Catawba County Emergency Management Karyn Yaussy said.

RAW DAY FRIDAY: Friday will be mostly cloudy, breezy, cold and wet at times as moisture wraps around the back side of the departing storm system. It will be windy Tuesday too.

WEDNESDAY: Skies will be partly cloudy with highs in the 80's.

Most of Wednesday will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. It may become rather breezy at times overnight with winds of 5 to 10 miles per hour likely and possibly gusting upwards of 20 miles per hour especially south of I-10. On a scale of 1-to-5, a 2 in the yellow-shaded region.
