Good morning! We're talking about some afternoon warmth headed our way, but you'll want to have some long sleeves on this morning. It's a chilly start to the day - especially in WNC, where temperatures range from the upper 30s to the mid 40s. In the Upstate, southern and eastern spots are well into the 40s, while Greenville and Spartanburg are holding onto the low 50s.
Skies are clear this morning (watch for some patchy fog in WNC), and we'll stay dry and bright today. Sun glare could lead to some slow-downs on the roads, but other than that, the weather shouldn't cause you any problems. Highs will rise nearly ten degrees above-normal, near 80 degrees in the Upstate and in the mid/upper 70s in the Mountains.
We'll stay dry and warm through the rest of the week - with the warmest temps coming tomorrow. We'll likely be in the low 80s tomorrow afternoon across the Upstate. If you enjoy the warmth, you'll have until the start of the weekend to get outdoors. If you'd like to see a cooler "fall feel" on thermometers, Sunday will be your day. Highs by the end of the weekend and early next week will dip into the upper 50s to mid 60s.
If you read Andy's post from yesterday, you saw the write-up regarding the potential for a significant storm along the East Coast next week. While earlier model runs showed the tropical system merging with a trough over the East Coast, the latest indications keep the two from phasing - keeping the big cities from seeing a big storm. We'll continue to watch it as we get closer, but the trend has been to get away from the big wind/snow event.
