You go okay, I guess she's looking at me Michelle So I'm going to talk about the severe weather. It was a lot. It was very unsettled this morning, at least in my neighborhood. Same for you, It was great skies across. Yeah, so how we looking right now, Michelle right now, we do have some rumbles of thunder and some isolated severe thunderstorms have been popping up throughout the afternoon hours this morning, non severe but we did have some reports of some very strong to severe gusts out there coming down from those storms now through this evening, numerous storms isolated severe threats including a possibility of a tornado or two now, late evening threats start to really fade once we get you into about 10, 11 o'clock overnight we could have some spotty showers and then we're gonna dry out a little later. Tomorrow take a look at this gorgeous photograph coming in from amber Burcham, you can see the rotation in this cloud and what looks to be a lowering cloud. We tend to see this with these tropical systems and so some of these clouds of course moving a lot. We call those in meso cyclones and then when we begin to see some of those clouds lower, the question is, do we see these columns of air then rotate and reach the ground? That's when it will become a tornado, no damage reports. Those were some of the pictures coming in from west Pine Street areas near north, very high school in Mount Airy. Also a lot of folks reporting seeing those clouds really getting dark and rotating lots of heavy rain and also the lightning we had that tornado warning earlier this afternoon briefly for southern sections of Al Gara, northern sections of Surrey County. Excuse me in the year Mount area impacted our for you continue through the evening hours damaging winds and tornado risk are going to continue. So we have seen gusty winds out there, we've got that marginal risk area all the way from roanoke down south through the triad and right now we've got rain stony, no shoals 52 it's gonna be a little bit wet out there. We may see ponding on the roadways in addition to the gusts and watching these lightning strikes here, intensifying at least rainfall for folks in southern Randolph County. So possibility that we could see some gusts coming out of these storms, even a 30 40 mile an hour gusts when you've got very wet soil conditions could take down some trees. We want to caution you about getting on the road during these storms because of the risk for wind damage. We don't want any trees to come down on the cars and certainly the heavy rain from these storms to posing a threat for drivers out there. Eighties for you for the next few hours, then we're going to see those shower chances start to drop off gradually throughout the day. Tomorrow, most of the range should be out of here by middle of the afternoon for the triad. You noticed by early morning, a lot of that already exiting the clouds, hopefully clearing just in time before you see the sunset and you'll have good drying taking place. You're gonna notice that big drop in dew points to for you later in the evening, the sixties into the fifties and morning lows also following suit into friday morning, we got some fifties for you. A little clearing today after we had that morning burst of energy right over the southern Piedmont while non severe. A lot of tropical energy rolled in right overhead and without those showers and storms. Elka now starting to dry out also down south too long town. But we're going to get more thunderstorm activity going for you within the next hour we expect this line to form a bit better and move east. So one or two becoming severe right now, you're 81 degrees in the tribe 92 out in Raleigh where you've had more sunshine there, no weather alerts at the out at this hour, but later this evening impact hours are going to continue through nine o'clock. Our seventies come into play also for the foothills, we've got those temperatures in the seventies with 68 degrees through midnight. And then we see those temperatures also comfortable sixties for folks in the mountains, you hold onto the humidity to even though your rain chances are lower. And look ahead from thursday through friday saturday and sunday, we are heating back up So enjoy it while you can we think that the dryer will be with us all the way through your sunday. Look at the 67 degrees in the Piedmont tomorrow morning rain, chances will start to taper off later in the afternoon high of 78 degrees mountain conditions from the fifties, more mild as we get you into the late afternoon hours and northerly breezes, you can see the foothills near 77 degrees and it's drier. Tomorrow we do look forward to that low humidity. It's coming our way. And I'm looking forward to saying that we've got those 80's on tap along with the low humidity. But 90's they return pretty quickly Monday Tuesday and then we see humidity creep up next week too. All right, thank you so much. So much Michelle right now. A live look at Salem Parkway at Highway 66. This is in Kernersville, thankfully no major backups out there, no delays in the Piedmont triad so far. So good folks, you'll soon be able to really grab and go at two whole foods stores opening next year. Look at some new technology making cashiers obsolete and the option for people who still like to shop school and you can watch the Macy's thanksgiving Day parade in person this year. The precautions that parade staff and volunteers will have to follow if they want to walk the route. Welcome back everyone, there will be something missing at two whole foods stores opening next year. The rows of cashiers amazon says it will bring its cashier. Let's technology to new stores in Washington D. C. And Sherman oaks California. So the concept will let shoppers grab what they need and leave cameras and sensors track what's taken off shelves and the items then charged to customers amazon account self checkout lanes will still be available that take cash gift cards and other types of payment. Well folks, it is official the 2021 of Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, it's going to be an impersonal event this year. Now last year the parade was a tv only event limited to performances with no giant balloons or festive floats that have become a long story tradition. Well coronavirus protocols, they're going to be in place, participants this year will be required to show proof of vaccination and they must wear a mask. Now the 95th annual parade will kick off thanksgiving morning in new york city. You'll be able to watch it right here on W X II 12. Still ahead. President biden is set to roll out a six point plan for fighting the spread of the delta variant. A closer look at the new strategy when we come back you're watching W X II 12 news. Thanks so much for staying with us. We're keeping a close eye on storms that could actually impact your afternoon as well as your evening. Meteorologist Michelle Kennedy is here with more Michelle. Yeah, we are talking about those showers and thunderstorms and they continue to brew out there for us. Back to the west. We're going to continue to look for more out there as well and you can see mount airy they were dealing with the tornado warning for a brief time. A little lowering of the clouds and rotating clouds. Having some folks concerned that we might see a tornado on the ground and certainly by radar estimates to National Weather Service issued that warning earlier this afternoon. We still have a threat to see some of these thunderstorms bringing some damaging wind gusts. Also that tornado risk is included with any of these severe storms today. But again, when we talk about isolated, we're talking about one or two. Not everyone will see not only the rain, but also the severe weather that is going to be limited out there locally heavy downpours. So this is what we've seen since this morning. A lot of good juicy tropical moisture riding in from the gulf of Mexico today, heavier downpours in the southern Piedmont right now and some showers stretched out still south of Sparta. These are non severe at this point. The severe thunderstorm warning in Yakima County fizzling as it moved in from the west to the east. You can see thunderstorms here over Randolph County. These are the areas that look like we can see some more intensification at least with the lightning strikes continuing to fire Right now the heavy rains to are in the mix for us and we've got the showers, we have the thunderstorms with frequent lightning concerns and the damaging wind risk continue through about 10 11 o'clock tonight. You're at 81 degrees right now in Greensboro to 83 in Reidsville later this evening. We start to drop those temperatures in response to the clouds and the cooler rain that will come in shower chances tomorrow are going to be off and on a little spotty action early morning and then we clear out here comes the dry air you see around 56 o'clock, you should be noticing comfortable temperatures, low humidity and just gorgeous weather. Now we take that gorgeous weather straight into the weekend and we drop your rain chances out completely. So I think you're going to have a great chance to look at gorgeous conditions today though noticing that we did have some cloud thinning even over areas. We had some rain and strong thunderstorms this morning. Now we've got a little sunshine and those clouds starting to build ahead of a cold front. So we may see a few more isolated storms right now they're getting a little bit of a break over alcon and mountain area where active weather had folks under tornado warnings earlier, much more coming up. Okay, thank you. Educators and health officials nationwide, they are sounding the alarm over the surge of coronavirus cases among Children. More than 250,000 child covid cases were reported last week. That is more than a quarter of the total number of cases reported Over that period. Now folks, this comes as the nation hits a grim milestone. The us surpassing 40 million total coronavirus infections. This particular variant has has attacked the adults at a faster rate. It's attacked our student population at a faster rate. You've got to get the school system masked. In addition to surrounding the Children with that with vaccinated. Health officials worry that it could get worse after families traveled over the long holiday weekend. Well, new research shows that flu season is coming on pretty fast and it could be miserable amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health conducted two studies aimed at predicting hospitalizations during the 2021 22 flu season. And while it's hard to predict the future, experts say that a combination of factors could make this winter particularly tough, especially as Children are back in school. And because the flu is minimal last year, people were not exposed to the virus potentially undermining the protection. They would normally have. President biden meantime is set to roll out a six point covid 19 plan tomorrow including efforts to get more americans vaccinated. It's right. The new White house strategy, it comes as the virus is upending. Return to office plans and sounding alarms as Children head back to school, Alice Barr has more now from Washington. I want to thank the president biden today remembering the lives lost to the covid pandemic. I'd like to pause for a moment of silence. One of the hundreds of union workers and essential workers who have died from covid 19. He's meeting with his covid advisors and preparing to address the nation tomorrow. About a new six point plan to battle the delta variant that's still surging across the country in hard hit Idaho. This hospital turning a conference room into a covid unit as it quickly runs out of space. The patients that are being hospitalized are largely unvaccinated, but many of them are younger and they're getting sick or faster. The president planning to double down on public private partnerships to get more americans vaccinated, Especially those under 40 who are lagging behind. He's also expected to address plans for booster shots and he's under pressure to offer more guidance for schools with thousands of largely unvaccinated students now back in the classroom and many states banning mask mandates absent mass. We just simply don't have the social space within the schools in order to be able to operate safely. Covid outbreaks have already caused 1400 school closures in 35 states and the american Academy of pediatrics says cases among kids are rising more than 250,000 Children testing positive last week alone. That's more than a quarter of all new cases nationwide. In Washington Alice Barr, NBC. News, Taking a look at the vaccination numbers at this time in North Carolina, 55% of the population has received at least one coronavirus vaccine. Well, 51% is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 Roughly 10.6 million doses have been administered across the state in Virginia. Nearly 65% of the state's population has received at least one dose. A little more than 57% is considered fully vaccinated against COVID. More than 10 million doses of vaccine have been administered in Virginia. The State Senate has approved a measure that would limit the governor's powers during emergencies. Now this bill requires the governor to get approval of an emergency declaration from other statewide elected leaders within seven days. Now lawmakers, they would also need to sign off on the declaration in order for the governor to extend it beyond those 45 days. The bill now goes back to the House for final approval.
