The Charlotte area can expect more scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening and on Thursday and Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg, S.C.
Some areas could also see lightning and heavy downpours, and a few storms could produce damaging wind gusts.
New rainfall amounts of between a 10th and a quarter of an inch are expected both Wednesday and Thursday, and higher amounts in thunderstorms.
That new precipitation should be welcome news to gardeners, who’ve seen only a trace of rain in May compared with the normal 2.60 inches by this time of the month.
