Greensboro, NC -- A Tornado Watch is in effect for most of the WFMY News 2 area until 11 pm Saturday. While the threat is not zero, it is decreasing as the main batch of thunderstorms continues to head off to the east.
Strong to severe storms storms moved slowly across the Triad this afternoon and into the evening. The primary threats were large hail, damaging winds, lightning and heavy rain. There were even some tornado warnings in effect for a few Virginia counties.
Heavy rains were a problem for Surry, Carroll and Patrick Counties, which received 3-4" of rain over the course of a few hours. Most other areas picked up anywhere from 0.5- 1.5" of rain.
The upper level low will continue to move to the east and bring unsettled weather for Sunday. While Sunday morning should remain dry, there is another chance of afternoon thunderstorms. The difference is that the severe potential appears to be much lower. Highs will be in the low 70s.
