Major Winter Storm Bringing Damaging Winds And Possible Tornadoes This Weekend


Our region is about to see one last (hopefully) major winter storm for the season as a straight-line cold front is setting up the conditions for some dangerous and damaging conditions.

The National Weather Service sent out the following alert this morning for the Charlotte region:

A cold front will cross the Carolinas and northeast Georgia tonight
and increase the chance for thunderstorm development. The atmosphere
will become weakly unstable and along with high amounts of shear, a
few thunderstorms could become strong to severe across northeast
Georgia, the Upstate, and the Piedmont of North Carolina. The main
threat with these storms will be damaging straight-line winds.

Tomorrow we will also experience bitter cold temperatures throughout the day, with a low of around 21 degrees expected Saturday night into Sunday morning.
