Good morning! We are starting off this Thursday with a few isolated showers (we've had a few in WNC and as of this writing - 7:15 AM - there are a few raindrops coming down around Gaffney). Any activity on the radar early today will be isolated. In fact, most spots will begin the day with more sunshine. However, the afternoon brings a similar setup: increasing clouds and rain/storm chances.
Rain showers and t-storms will be scattered about this afternoon, but the highest chance will come this evening and tonight. Heavy downpours will come down with any storms - and any areas that see several "rounds" of showers or storms could have to watch for some localized flooding issues.
As far as the storm threat goes, we are in the "Slight Risk" area today (see the SPC's Convective Outlook here), which means our chances are elevated. Damaging wind gusts and hail will be the prime threats within storms, however, an isolated tornado is possible. The southern half of WNC, Upstate and NE GA Counties will all have to be on the lookout later today. We'll be here to keep you posted of any watches or warnings.
Rain - heavy at times - will continue tonight, with showers lingering through the first half of Friday. Most spots will begin to dry out by early Friday afternoon - with some clearing coming later in the day. Temperatures will take a tumble tomorrow - we'll top out in the low to mid 70s today, with Friday highs dipping to the low and mid 60s.
There is good news in the forecast, however! The weekend will be REALLY nice - we'll see sunshine on Saturday and Easter Sunday, and temperatures will be comfortable both days. It will be a bit chilly during the mornings (especially Saturday), so layers will be key as you plan your Easter wardrobe.
