Severe storm threat fades, but more rain coming

Just an update to my earlier post today ... the severe weather threat has ended for the Charlotte area, as the strongest energy with the low pressure system has drifted off to the east.

Despite all the thunder, lightning and warnings, less than 1/5 of an inch of rain has fallen so far today at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. But additional showers are likely later today, and we need them.

After a warm and partly sunny day Tuesday, we'll probably get another round of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday with a cold frontal's arrival.
