SUNNY today ahead of Tuesday rain


NICE weather starts the week, but BIG changes are ahead through the weekend.

This morning, expect a chilly start with a mostly clear sky and temperatures in the 30s and 40s.

Later today, mostly sunny conditions warm the afternoons into the upper 50s and lower/middle 60s with a light breeze.

Clouds thicken up overnight into Tuesday ahead of rain during the afternoon and evening hours. Expect locally heavy downpours with rain amounts between one half and one inch.

Generally quiet and cooler conditions are expected Wednesday through Friday, but temperatures fall into the 40s by Friday for highs!

A disturbance could bring the threat for accumulating mountain snow Saturday, but at this time, most of this is NOT expected to impact the Upstate outside of a few flurries north of I-85.

A hard freeze is likely Sunday morning with lows well down in the 20s across the entire area.
