A developing line of storms could bring severe weather to the Lake Norman area Saturday afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

“Numerous thunderstorms are expected to impact the area today,” the NWS Greenville-Spartanburg office said in a bulletin Saturday morning. “Some of these thunderstorms will likely become severe, with damaging winds and large hail being the primary threats.”

The storms will move quickly but still could produce flooding in low-lying areas, the weather service advised.

The thunderstorms will move quickly, but briefly heavy rainfall could produce isolated flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas.

“Expect frequent cloud to ground lightning in the stronger thunderstorms as well,” the advisory added.

The chance of storms is 30 percent Saturday afternoon, rising to 60 percent Saturday night and into Sunday.

High temperatures are expected in the low 80s Saturday. Lows tonight will be in the mid-60, with highs in the upper 70s Sunday.
