Good morning! Hopefully you were able to enjoy the fantastic weekend - we had lots of sun and comfy temps at the swimming pools, and the mornings were nice and cool (perfect for opening up the windows)! It was so cool that NWS GSP said that the Saturday morning minimum temperature of 52 degrees was the coldest June temperature in 12 years (note: Sunday's low temperature was also 52 degrees). I know the joggers loved it, and it was nice to get some fresh air moving through the house!
This morning temperatures have been back into the 50s and 60s - so we're back to the warmer morning thermometer readings. We had some thunderstorms earlier this morning (mainly in the western and southern spots) - so that could have spoiled your sleep, too!
The storm threat has shifted over to the coast now, so much of our viewing area is dry (there are a few spotty showers in southern/western counties). Another mass of thunderstorms that was in western TN early this morning has taken more of a southerly track, so this is affecting parts of Mississippi and Alabama now.
We'll stay mainly dry through midday, but we will keep the clouds around. By the middle and late-afternoon, a few more thunderstorms could fire up - particularly in the western and southern spots (yes, again! It's because a front will be positioned closer to these areas). I'd expect less action in northern and eastern counties, but we can't rule out an isolated rain shower or t-storm there - so keep an eye out.
Afternoon highs will be close to normal, in the mid 80s in the Upstate and the upper 70s in WNC. Winds will be breezy in the Mountains, out of the NW at 10-15 mph.
We'll keep the chance of storms on Tuesday, with rain showers continuing on Wednesday. Winds will take on more of an easterly component, and this will help to cool us down through mid-week. Wednesday highs will be several degrees below-normal, in the low 70s in WNC and the upper 70s in the Upstate. Rain chances will taper off and sunshine will return for the end of the week and weekend - with temperatures returning to seasonal levels by Saturday.
