After a heavy downpour, the skies cleared up in Winston-Salem Friday afternoon.

GREENSBORO, NC -- As quickly as it came, severe weather is leaving the Triad behind. A strong storm system is exiting North Carolina this evening, with beautiful sunshine in store the rest of the weekend.

Severe Thunderstorms were numerous across the Triad Friday afternoon. From large hail the size of golf balls, to damaging winds that snapped trees in half, these storms brought a little bit of everything as they rolled through.

Thankfully, no tornadoes were observed across the Piedmont-Triad, but Eastern North Carolina was not as likely. Several tornadoes were seen east of I-95, from Goldsboro to Greenville to the Virginia border.

Quiet weather will remain with us through Saturday, with high pressure building in. Temperatures will soar to near 80 tomorrow afternoon, making for a beautiful day.

Remember, whenever severe weather strikes, you can count on the WFMY Weather Team to keep you informed. You can sign up for severe weather alerts HERE.

Rain was heavy in the southern part of Forsyth County Friday afternoon due to storms passing through the Piedmont.
