A cold front is in the process of crossing our area right now, and it's bringing a band of t-storms. The strongest storms have developed to our east today, as severe t-storm and tornado watches have been places for the mid-Mid-Atlantic region and the central/eastern Carolinas. We got lucky today by having some clouds this morning and a fast moving cold front. Plus, the best dynamics and instability are placed east of us.
We do still have a few strong storms to deal with from 4-7pm. Heavy downpours and lightning appear to be the main threats at this point, but we can't totally rule out an isolated severe storm with damaging wind and/or hail.
Storms should end by this evening (most spots dry after 8PM), then we'll feel some cooler air blowing in tonight. We'll drop into the upper 50s for the Upstate and low 50s in the mountains. The weekend is looking great! Expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the 70s for Saturday, then 70s for the mountains and 80s in the Upstate on Sunday.
