Severe Threat Tuesday for the Carolinas

If you are staying home on Tuesday like you should, then you will be in a safe place in case severe weather strikes, however, you should already have a designated safe spot in your home. While it won’t be overly likely that you will need it, there is the chance for damaging thunderstorms including the possibility of isolated tornadoes. There is a very widespread Sligh Risk area for tomorrow from the SPC.

The severe events are difficult to predict, however keep your guard up for most of the day since they could hit at anytime. The most dangerous part of the day is when it’s warmest, between 1 and 5 pm. Be on alert especially during those hours. However, the severe threat may not end by then, so be on alert all day, from the morning through the afternoon and night.

If there is a bit of a severe outbreak, we will let you know when it’s over and safe! Pay close attention to the weather Tuesday and for warnings from the NWS as they are the official source of information.

Try to stay home and not head out into severe weather!
