It's a SOGGY morning for some spots, as heavy rainfall is coming down in Western North Carolina. We are also seeing light to moderate rainfall in the northern and western part of the Upstate, while areas to the south and east are seeing more dry time and sunshine.
Today's 'weather story' will be very similar to Monday's: Most of the rain - as well as the heaviest rain - will fall through the Mountains. Flood Watches continue for much of our WNC territory through Wednesday morning, and we've also had some Flood Advisories posted into SW NC this morning. Water rises have been occurring on small creeks and streams, and some low-lying areas may experience minor flooding. Landslides will also be a possibility, so keep that in mind as you travel through the Mountains today.
In the Upstate, most of the rain will be focused in northern and western counties (Oconee, Anderson, Pickens and Greenville Counties). The further south and east you live, the less rain you'll see. In addition, highs will rise to the low 60s in Greenville and Spartanburg... but highs could top out closer to the mid and upper 60s farther southeast where you'll see more sun and less rain/cloud cover.
Rain will continue overnight and early Wednesday, before tapering off late Wednesday. Another system is still expected to move through Thursday afternoon and evening. I think that most of the Upstate will see rain only, with a few snow showers Thursday night in Northern Upstate spots. These will be BRIEF, however, and we won't see any accumulations in the Upstate. Through Western North Carolina, rain and snow is likely - with HIGH ELEVATION spots possibly getting a few inches of snowfall by late Thursday night/very early Friday morning. We'll continue to watch the system as it gets closer, and will update you on any changes to the forecast.
