Good morning! We've been tracking rain to our west the past few hours, and as of this writing (around 7 AM), some steady light to moderate rain is falling in our SW NC Counties, as well as in parts of NE GA. These showers will continue to push eastward, but will weaken as they do so. So by the time this band works closer to Anderson, Asheville and Greenville-Spartanburg, they'll become much lighter and more scattered.
This band of showers is out ahead of a cold front, which will cross our area later today. As this front passes, it will likely cause the re-development of rain showers and t-storms. The prime locations to watch (locally) will be our eastern spots - so a line from Asheville to Greenville and points east. These spots could see a strong storm, with gusty winds the main threat. Overall, the best severe weather threat today will be further to our east and northeast (see SPC Outlook here). Storms should be out of our area by the evening, with a dry overnight expected.
Tomorrow will be sunny and dry. In fact, the air will be VERY dry - and that, combined with breezy winds, will enhance the fire danger tomorrow. Please keep that in mind as you spend time outdoors tomorrow. Friday highs will be a bit cooler than today's. We'll range from the mid 60s (Mountains) to low 70s (Upstate) today, while Friday temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 60s for most.
The weekend will stay slightly below-normal, with sunshine lingering through the weekend. In fact, the dry and quiet weather will likely hang on through the first half of next week - so get your sunglasses ready to go!
