Happy Saturday! It's been a beautiful start to the weekend - and the end of our weekend looks pretty good, too. We'll keep the comfortable humidity and below-normal temperatures around on Father's Day. Upstate highs will rise into the mid 80s on Sunday, while WNC temperatures will rise to near 80 degrees.
Sunday will bring partly cloudy skies across much of the area, and we will bump up the precip chance... a little. In the Mountains, we'll likely see a few hit-or-miss storms develop, but with a 30% chance of precip most areas will stay dry. While I don't expect much of anything in the Upstate, I will mention the chance for an isolated shower or storm during the PM hours - particularly into the northwestern corner (Oconee, Pickens Counties) and into NE GA.
The heat and humidity will build back in next week - as dewpoints work back into the 60s on Monday (they'll stay into the 60s through next weekend). Highs will rise into the 80s and 90s through the week (the hottest thermometer readings will come late in the week), with each afternoon/evening bringing the opportunity for an isolated PM shower or storm in the Upstate and widely scattered rain/storms in the Mountains.
Some of the models (including our in-house model, Futurecast) hint at the possibility of a MCS (mesoscale convective system - basically a thunderstorm complex) working into WNC Monday morning - but it's still very uncertain. Kendra will be in Sunday night at 10 with a look at the radar details and more information on that chance.
In the meantime, enjoy the rest of your weekend - and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there (with a BIG shout out to my dad)!
