Showers tonight, t-storms tomorrow

Posted: Updated:

I'm watching showers move in this afternoon from Tennessee into western NC.  Showers will slowly drift into the Upstate and northeast GA through the evening and tonight.  Showers will be possible through the morning commute (mostly light stuff), then isolated t-storms will develop as our environment heats up and destabilizes.   We'll have a lot of storm energy around tomorrow midday, so any storm that develops could produce damaging wind and hail of quarter size of larger.  I expect most of the storms to be confined to the midlands as this system shifts east, but a few rogue storms in the Upstate will be possible.

The showers for tonight and tomorrow AM shouldn't amount to much, but up to 0.5" of rain will be possible. 

Once the showers/storms move out late Tuesday we'll be focused on the serious warmth for Wednesday and Thursday!  Highs will reach the low 80s in the Upstate and upper 70s in the mountains! This is about 20 degrees warmer than normal!!!  By Friday we'll bring in more clouds and a chance for showers and storms.  Saturday (St. Patrick's Day) is looking MOSTLY dry at this point, but I do have a 30% chance of scattered showers and storms for the festivities. 

So, tonight and Tuesday don't look like flooding rain events, and neither does Friday-Saturday.  However, during the spring season we may see some flood threats.  Below is a link to some info on Flood Safety Awareness from NWS.
