Rowan weather: Isolated thunderstorms possible

This morning’s sunny skies don’t look threatening, but we are, again, under a hazardous weather outlook.
There is a chance of isolated thunderstorms developing along and north of a line from Newland, in the mountains, to Statesville and Salisbury this afternoon and evening. The National Weather Service says there will be considerable wind shear and instability in the area, so that any thunderstorms that do develop might include large hail and damaging winds.
But for most of the day it will be sunny, with a high near 83. The chance for showers and storms begins this evening, and it’s around 20 percent, with a low around 56.
Tuesday will be downright hot, with a high near 86 and mostly sunny skies. Again Tuesday night, expect a 20 percent chance of showers and storms and a low around 57.
Wednesday will be less warm, with a high near 78 and a low around 59, but 86 comes right back Thursday, under mostly sunny skies. Thursday’s low will be around 60.
It will be near 86 again on Friday, with a low of 62. It’s shaping up to be a hot work week.
The weekend brings a mostly cloudy Saturday with a high near 81 and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening with a low around 60. Expect the same Sunday, with a high near 81 and a 30 percent chance of showers and storms.
