New Line of Storms Headed Our Way PDF Print

As North Carolina cleans up from the 62 tornadoes that raked the state less than two weeks ago, another storm system is on our door step.  The National Weather Service has issued a severe weather statement for our area, predicting that strong to severe storms will develop during the day today as the frontal system approaches, developing into a squall line late tonight and through the overnight. The prediction is for strong storms with possible hail and damaging winds, so keep a weather radio at hand and do whatever preparation your property might need today. 
This morning’s issue is fog—reports of thick fog through Deep Gap and at least to the Wilkes line on 421, but no other area in the mountains are reporting fog at this point.
The last storm system dumped 5 inches of rain on the High Country, causing flooding in many areas.  At this point, there is no prediction of rainfall totals out of this line of storms, but the weather statement says flooding of low lying areas may come with this storm as well. This storm has already a history of injury, as 9 people were injured when struck by lightning in Michigan at a soccer match.  Behind the storm—cooler weather for the weekend.
