Happy Tuesday! We've been starting the day with some scattered rain - it's been primarily light but there have been a few moderate/heavy downpours, mainly across the southern Upstate areas. As we go through the mid-morning, we'll continue to watch for scattered (mainly light) rain.
A cold front will be sliding through the region today, leading to another risk of scattered rain and thunderstorms. I think our best storm chances will come between 11 AM and 4 PM... and I think our eastern counties will hold a slightly higher chance of seeing the storms. Any thunderstorms could produce some heavy downpours - and we'll also have to be aware of the threat of gusty winds within stronger storms.
By the time most are heading home from work the storm threat will be shifting east of the area - so the late-afternoon and evening will only feature a chance for a spotty rain shower or rumble of thunder.
Highs today will hit the mid 80s in the Upstate and the low 80s in WNC - and it will be MUGGY! The cold front will help to drop the humidity for the second half of the week, but as Kendra said the temperatures behind the front will actually be hotter.
Wednesday through Friday we'll be mainly dry, with just an isolated/hit-or-miss storm chance during the PM hours. The weekend looks pretty good as of now - with plenty of sunshine and pool-worthy temperatures!
