Lincoln Herald Staff

We have a stormy week ahead--but don't blame Fred.  Fred is anticipated to steadily strengthen as it tracks toward the Florida Panhandle where it will make landfall Monday afternoon. 

From there, Fred will track northward and will bring heavy rain to the North Carolina mountains overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.  But even without Fred, the atmosphere is right for stormy weather.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for showers and thunderstorms Monday, especially after 3 pm.  Monday night, showers and thunderstorms are likely.  The probability of rain increases Tuesday and Wednesday, and remains at 60% or more on Thursday.

In Shelby, the American Legion World Series is scheduled to complete a rained out Sunday game Monday morning, but it has been raining so far.  Two semifinal games are tentatively scheduled for Monday afternoon and the championship game for Tuesday night, but the weather may be a problem.

Over the weekend, some areas got considerable rain and wind.  What may have been a tornado struck Startown Road just north of Lincolnton Saturday afteroon, toppling several large trees.  

High school football is scheduled to begin this Friday--but there's still a 50% chance of rain on Friday.  That diminishes to 30% Friday night, Saturday and Sunday.
