Matthew East just posted this on Facebook. Wonder how long this line will hold together.

11:45am Tuesday: Line of heavier showers with gusty winds from near Hickory to Shelby moving quickly eastward. Winds could gust to 45mph with this activity. Live weather updates on Spectrum News. #ncwx #cltwx #wncwx

Short range models still not overly excited about this threat and with all the low clouds, drizzle and light showers around I have a hard time seeing enough instability to get much going today. If all that breaks and the sun pops then maybe, since wind profiles still seem decent
Looks like its gonna happen. New meteorologist now in the WRAL Weather center.

Okay here’s my review of the line as it passed i77 in Yadkin/Iredell. No gusts to 45mph. A few white out conditions as 3 or 5 gusts pushed 30mph with heavy rain. Lots of water tho with good rates. No thunder or lightning anywhere.

So, no lightning?

No video didn’t see any rotation mega tornadoes to document as was originally planned.

This weather system has a history of producing violent tornadoes (EF3 Dallas) so I wouldn’t be surprised to see one or two in VA/NC still.
