GREENSBORO, N.C. — Our threat for severe weather is going down. Showers and storms will continue through the early evening hours Friday, and then we'll start to dry out for the weekend.
The WFMY News 2 Weather Team has been tracking this strong cold front all afternoon. It brought severe weather to our west the last several days as it moved across the country. For us, that threat is much lower -- but we still could see a strong storm or two before it leaves.
Any storm that is able to form on Friday afternoon could become strong. However, it's not likely that we'll see many like that. The main concern with any storms that form would be for damaging wind gusts. An isolated tornado isn't likely, but we'll keep an eye on it just to be safe. The threat for any storms is from through 6pm.
By evening, everything will be clearing out, and we head into a dry and sun-filled weekend. It will be cooler, with highs only in the 50s on Saturday and Sunday and cold mornings in the 30s. That chilly weather will stick around for next week as well, with a mainly dry weather pattern continuing.
