Tropical Storm Isaac continues to move very slowly across Louisiana producing very heavy rain and flash flooding in some areas.
Other than higher humidity due to the moisture fetch from Isaac, our weather conditions aren't far from what we expect for this time of year.
Overnight: Temperatures will cool back into the 60s and 70s with a slim chance for a passing shower.
Thursday: We'll likely see more sunshine tomorrow, especially in the morning. By the afternoon, expect a mixture of sunshine and clouds with highs reaching the upper 80s in many Upstate towns with low 80s in Western NC. There will be around a 30% chance for any town or community to be caught under a late-day storm.
South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt: Since the game is in Nashville (Thurs. evening), the moisture and rain from Isaac may impact the game. Importantly, there won't likely be long periods of rain or storms, but a few spotty showers or a storm could briefly make field conditions a bit sloppy. Since South Carolina's running game is so prolific, a wet field could play to the favor of Marcus Lattimore and company. Odds are, field conditions will be dry.
Friday: We'll have a partly cloudy sky Friday as highs reach the upper 80s once again for Upstate towns. Western NC communities will feel temperatures climb into the low 80s for most places. Expect a 30% chance that any town or community gets caught under a late-day storm.
Clemson vs. Auburn: Since this game will be played in the Georgia Dome on Saturday, the slim chance of rain won't have as big of an impact. Still, any passing shower or storm could slow traffic down for a bit. Expect temperatures in the low 80s around kickoff outside the Georgia Dome before things cool off into the 70s.
