Warmer today with scattered showers


It gets warmer Thursday, but the risk of scattered showers will continue and actually increase over the weekend.

Patchy dense fog will be the story Thursday morning, but that will gradually dissipate by 10 a.m. Thereafter, warmer air and lingering moisture will bring the risk of scattered showers developing after lunch. A few storms are possible as well, with the greatest coverage in the mountains.

Scattered showers and storms are again possible on Friday and Saturday in the mountains with a lower coverage expected in the Upstate. Afternoon highs remain in the upper 70s to middle 80s.

A higher coverage of showers and storms is expected Sunday as a front and low pressure system move across the region. Some locally heavy downpours or strong storms remain possible as well.

Calmer weather settles in to start next week, though the sky could be slow to clear thanks to another possible wedge developing. Temperatures rebound to near 80 degrees by Wednesday.
