Good morning! It's been a soggy Tuesday morning - which made it really tough for a lot of us to get out of bed! Rain and thunderstorms have been most numerous over the past few hours - and this was our best-chance time for seeing the wet weather.
As we get into the lunchtime hour and go through the afternoon, winds will take on an easterly direction. This wind direction will keep us cool and moist - typical of those "wedge-like" days that we often describe.
While rain chances won't be too high this afternoon, there is the chance (~30%) to see a few scattered showers - particularly in the NW corner of the Upstate, SW NC and the mountains of NE GA. I doubt much of the rain will be heavy; instead, we'll see light rain that will dampen the roads for the PM commute.
Clouds will stick with us through the afternoon - and the easterly flow will keep temperatures below-normal. Upstate highs will reach the upper 70s, while WNC temperatures will rise into the low to mid 70s.
Easterly flow continues on Wednesday, meaning we'll be looking at more of the same (mostly cloudy skies, scattered rain and cool temperatures). Wednesday highs will be the coolest of the week and will be about ten degrees below-normal.
Temperatures rebound by the end of the week, with drier weather back for Thursday and Friday. The weekend will be summer-like and mainly dry - but a few pop-up thunderstorms may fire up late Saturday and Sunday.
