Heads Up we could see a very soggy and unsettled week ahead!
We are watching a stalled cold front that will advance north into North Carolina late this Sunday evening. This will provide an area of thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday morning. Most of the storms should remain below severe limits, but we can't rule out an isolated severe storm.
