THAT SCHOOL. I’M SCARED I’M GOING TO GET BEAT
UP. KENNY: A FORSYTH COUNTY FAMILY
SAYS SCHOOL LEADERS COULD HAVE
PREVENTED AN ATTACK ON A SCHOOL
BUS. HE STORY YOU WILL ONLY SEE ON
WXII 12. A SOLDIER STATIONED IN NORTH
CAROLINA IS RECOGNIZED FOR
BRAVERY UNDER FIRE. STARTING TONIGHT IN THE WEATHER
CENTER, JUST IN TIME FOR
TRICK-OR-TREATING, THE
POSSIBILITY OF NOT JUST RAIN,
BUT A LOT F SEVERE STUFF. SOME CHANGES IN JUST THE PAST
FEW MINUTES. MICHELLE: SOME MODELS SUGGESTING
STORMS COULD ARRIVE SOONER. IT DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE GOING TO
KICK THEM OUT EARLIER, BUT TAKE
A LOOK AT THIS. WE HAVE HEAVY RAINS RIGHT NOW. THOSE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE
OVERNIGHT, TOTALING ONE TO TWO
INCHES IN SPOTS. THEN WE’VE GOT THIS LINE THAT
FORMS. ABOUT 2:30 IN THE AFTERNOON. IT IS BACKED UP A COUPLE HOURS
FOR US. THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS WE
WILL BE ANALYZING. DOES THE NEXT MODEL RUN
CONTINUED TO HAVE US DEALING
WITH STORMS EARLIER? THIS COULD BE WHILE FOLKS ARE
TRYING TO GET ON SCHOOL BUSES,
OFF SCHOOL BUSES, OR PICKED UP
TO DO TRICK-OR-TREATING. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS HERE
SPREADING EAST THROUGH THE 5:00
HOUR. STILL RAIN BEHIND IT, SO NOT
CLEARING PERFECTLY FOR FOLKS IN
THE MOUNTAINS IN WESTERN
FOOTHILLS. THOSE STORMS COULD TRACK THROUGH
AROUND THE DINNER HOUR, MOVIES
BETWEEN 7:00 AND 8:00, COULD WE
GET OUT OF HERE IN TIME TO HAVE
A BIGGER IMPACT FOR
TRICK-OR-TREATERS TOWARD RALEIGH. WE ARE LOOKING AT IF THIS DOES
BACK UP EARLIER, MAYBE WE WILL
BE ABLE TO GET OUT THERE FOR AN
HOUR OR SO. IT’S GOING TO BE WINDY. COOLER CONDITIONS BUILD INTO THE
MOUNTAINS QUICKLY. BY EARLY FRIDAY MORNING, 39
DEGREES. RAINFALL TOTALS ARE GOING TO BE
COMING UP OVERNIGHT. MORE TOMORROW WITH SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS. COULD BRING FOUR-INCH TOTALS. WE ARE ALREADY SEEING ONE TO TWO
INCHES FROM RAINS TONIGHT. ONE TO TWO INCHES TOO EARLY
TOMORROW MORNING. LIKELY FOR MANY. FOUR INCH TOTALS NOT OUT OF THE
QUESTION. BEST TIMING FOR HEAVY RAINS,
4:00 TO 9:00. WE MIGHT HAVE TO BACK THAT UP. HERE IS YOUR HOUR BY HOUR
FORECAST AS WE TAKE YOU THROUGH
THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. SHOWERS, STORMS, SWEEPING OUT A
LITTLE BIT SOONER. WE CAN EXPECT TO SEE SHOWERS AND
STORMS BRING DAMAGING WINDS. WE TALKED ABOUT ISOLATED FLASH
FLOODING, SO LOCALIZED FLOODING
MAY COME OUT OF THIS. EVENTUALLY WE WILL LOOK AT THE
RAIN AND WIND BEFORE THAT LINE
AS WE GO THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF
THE DAY. THE TIMING WILL BE HONED. YOU WILL WANT TO JOIN ABOUT
NOONTIME. I WILL BE JOINING YOU AS WELL. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
CONTINUING TO BUILD THROUGH THE
SOUTH. HEAVY RAINS CONTINUED TONIGHT
WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE 60’S. MUCH MORE COMING UP. KENNY: NOW IS A GOOD REMINDER,

PLATFORMS.>>I WAS NOT PARTICULARLY

DISAGREE WITH THE MOVE, BUT HAS
SOME QUESTIONS.>>IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO

A POLITICAL AD? REPORTER: TWITTER CURRENTLY
