Wow, today's forecast is about as "Monday-ish" as they come! We have all the ingredients for a gloomy day in place: rain showers/drizzle, fog, clouds and cool temperatures.
It's soggy across much of the area right now (around 6:30 AM) - especially in the Upstate, where light to moderate rain is falling. Temperatures range from the upper 50s in WNC to the low/mid 60s in the Upstate, and temperatures won't move much today.
Easterly winds will provide the "wedge" forecast that we often talk about, and will keep thermometer readings fairly steady. Highs will be cool - only reaching the low to mid 60s this afternoon.
Clouds will hold tough through the day, so if it's not raining, it will look as if it's about to rain. Off-and-on showers will stick around through the day, along with areas of drizzle and light fog. We'll keep showers and areas of fog in the forecast overnight, and many locations look to see another soggy morning on Tuesday.
By Tuesday afternoon, a cold front will cross the area - and this will trigger a better chance of thunderstorms tomorrow. This afternoon I think most spots will be too cloudy and cool to support t-storms (except for our far southern spots, where a rumble of thunder is possible). By tomorrow afternoon, however, I expect some peeks of sun - and with the lifting the cold front provides, a few strong storms will be possible. Highs tomorrow will return to "normal" as we break down the wedge.
The rest of the week will be dry - and the weekend looks fairly dry as well. In tropics news, Nadine is STILL around, and is a hurricane. The NHC has been issuing advisories on Nadine since September 11th... so this is the storm that just won't quit! To see the latest advisory details on Nadine, click here.
