Seeing some sunshine, but Flood Warnings persist

Posted: Updated:

We are still dealing with a Flood Warning for some of the Upstate and western NC, generally in river areas.  The French Broad River in western NC is causing a Flood Warning along the river in Transylvania, Henderson, Buncombe, and Madison counties.  The Pacolet River in the Upstate is causing a Flood Warning along the river in Cherokee county, while the Saluda River is causing a Flood Warning in extreme SE Greenwood county.  These warnings will stay in place until river levels return to a safe stage, which could take another day or two with the onset of a few more rain showers/storms.

After a soggy set of days, we're finally seeing some sunshine again, though it will only come in patches, and we still won't stay dry all day.  As Monday continues, the upper level Low sitting in northern Alabama continues to send cloud cover and a few scattered showers our way, though some dry air will mix in giving us a mix of sun and clouds.  Temperatures will become much warmer today than over the weekend, with highs in the upper 60s Upstate, low 60s for western NC.  However - this is still much cooler than average. 

Tuesday, the low will track closer to the Upstate, bringing mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers and thunderstorms.  We could see a few downpours at times, but they won't be long lasting or as widespread as over the weekend.  Wednesday we'll squeeze the last bit of moisture out of this system for us, with otherwise mostly cloudy skies and highs rebounding into the upper 60s to mid 70s.
