Busy Weather Monday!

Posted: Updated:

Good morning - hope you had a great weekend!  The morning commute may take you a little longer than usual, as dense fog will be an issue across a chunk of the area this morning.  The NWS has issued a DENSE FOG ADVISORY until 8 AM for the following counties: Greater Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, Union, Laurens, Abbeville, Greenwood and Anderson.  In these areas, be prepared for very low visibilities - and that will make your commute take a little longer than usual.  The fog won't be limited to those areas - in fact, I have seen reports of low visibilities outside of the advisory counties.  Watch for some dense fog around Clemson as well... and possibly through some parts of WNC.

A cold front will slide through the area today, bringing a good chance of rain (mainly later in the day).  This morning, the main line of rain and storms is off to our west - moving through parts of KY, TN, AL and MS.  We have a few showers in our western spots, and we'll keep the chance of a few scattered showers there over the next few hours.  That main line of rain/storms will march closer to us by late morning, advancing into our western counties through the lunchtime period.  The rain and storms will move southeastward through the afternoon and evening... so I'd count on the best chance of rain between 2 PM and 10 PM. 

As far as the storm threat goes, the storms will likely still be kicking as they get to the western fringe of our area.  However, as the line moves through the Mountains, it will likely lose its potency (thanks to the better storm dynamics staying out of the area).  With that said, I can't rule out a strong/severe storm or two locally... but the better chance of that will stay out of our area.  The SPC keeps the Slight Risk area off to our west and southwest (see outlook here).

Winds will be breezy today - with 8-15 mph winds out of the south and southwest.  Winds could gust as high as 20 or 25 mph at times - possibly higher in the Mountains.  Temperatures will stay mild for one more day.  Highs today will peak in the upper 60s in the Upstate and the low/mid 60s in the Mountains.  Behind the front, we'll be much cooler on Tuesday - highs return to the 50s in the Upstate and 40s in the Mountains.
