Milder Afternoons Ahead

Posted: Updated:

TGIF!  We're off to a frosty and foggy (in spots) start!  Temperatures are in the low to mid 30s across most of the Upstate - with a few 20s showing up in our southern and eastern spots.  In WNC, temperatures are in the 20s with areas of patchy dense freezing fog.  One of the biggest 'problem spots' is Asheville, where visibilities have been a half a mile or lower.  The supercooled water droplets that make up the fog may freeze when they touch surfaces or objects that are cooled below-freezing - so please watch for a thin glaze of ice on bridges/overpasses, your car or railings/steps this morning.

By the afternoon, it's all about the sunshine.  Although our temperatures will stay a bit below-normal for this time of year, highs in the mid 50s to low 60s combined with the sunshine will feel more comfortable.  By the time you head out this evening, however, be armed with your sweatshirts/jackets - as evening temps will fall back into the 40s (for most spots by 8 PM).

Temperatures will be off to another chilly start early on Saturday - as lows again dip into the 20s and 30s.  Saturday afternoon will be similar to today - we'll see plenty of sunshine with highs in the low 60s (Upstate) and mid/upper 50s (WNC).  Winds will pick up a bit tomorrow and will be breezy at times (NE 5-15 mph - possibly gusting over 20 mph at times).  Keep that in mind if you'll be tailgating at Clemson - you may need to secure your tent more than usual!

Sunday will bring more cloud cover back to the region, with a spotty shower possible in the Upstate, WNC and NE GA.  We'll keep very small rain chances through the early part of next week - but at this point, it looks like it will be very quiet through the days leading up to Thanksgiving.  By the holiday, sunshine will take over, with seasonal highs expected next Thursday.
