TGIF! We'll keep the unsettled and muggy weather theme for the end of the week, so it'll be another day where you'll need to keep the umbrellas around. Scattered rain has been affecting parts of the Upstate, NE GA and WNC this morning - and we'll see some more coverage during the afternoon.
The chance of rain will be in the 50-60 percent range, so I think there will be plenty of off-and-on dry time through the day. Skies will stay mostly cloudy, but we'll see some peeks of sunshine here and there. The scattered rain and t-storms through the afternoon could bring some very heavy rainfall rates, and areas that see some slow-moving storms could have some flooding problems. I'd expect any flooding to be isolated/localized - and that's our main storm threat. The chance of any storms bringing hail/gusty winds is minimal.
It will stay very muggy today, with highs remaining several degrees below-normal. We'll rise into the upper 70s in WNC, while Upstate spots will top out in the low 80s.
Overnight I'd expect a few showers and even an isolated thunderstorm, but overall it will be quieter through the sleeping hours. Tomorrow brings scattered rain/t-storm chances (40% for all) - so there will be even more dry time on Saturday. It will be a little warmer than today, but tomorrow's temps will stay cooler-than-normal. By the end of the weekend, temperatures will return to normal with a small PM t-storm opportunity.
Next week brings a very typical summer-time forecast: small PM t-storm chances, high humidity and near-normal highs (low 90s for the Upstate, mid 80s in WNC). Have a great Friday - and a great weekend!
