Good morning! After a stormy night, it's a soggy morning... and you'll want to keep the umbrellas around today - you'll need them!
Rain is spread over Western North Carolina, NE GA and NW Upstate spots this morning. For the most part, the rain is on the light to moderate side, however, some heavy downpours are out there. We'll keep that trend going through the day.
There have been a few rumbles of thunder, and an isolated t-storm chance will stick around as the rain moves through. With that said, our severe threat is very low today - so we won't see the kind of storms that we had last night.
The swath of rain will slowly slide southeastward through the day - so it will reach our southern and eastern Upstate counties last. The rain will continue area-wide through the mid/late morning and afternoon hours before it begins to taper off later. The rain will be tapering off from west to east - so those southern and eastern spots (Laurens, Greenwood Counties) that are the last to see the rain begin will also be the last to see it end.
Rain will end overnight, with fog settling into much of the area. Clouds will also linger into Thursday morning. Rainfall accumulations by tonight will be around 1/2 inch to one inch.
Temperatures will only rise a few degrees today, and highs will be below-normal. We'll be cool in the Mountains, with highs around 60 degrees expected. The Upstate will be slightly warmer (but still cool for this time of the year), in the mid 60s.
The weekend will bring the arrival of another system - and this will also bring the chance of strong storms and heavy rainfall. Once we're done watching the current system, our attention will turn to that one!
