Sunday will bring sunshine, warmer temperatures

Posted: Updated:

Fox Carolina meteorologist Ted Phaeton said people across the area can expect a sunny and warm Sunday after a soggy and stormy Saturday, but flood warnings remain in effect for some areas.

"We've reached the light at the end of the tunnel," Phaeton said. "Saturday morning we saw severe thunderstorms move across the area, dumping over 2 inches of rain in some locations."

These showers were responsible for many issues from power outages and downed tree limbs, and flooding.

The National Weather service has issued a flood warning for Union County. The NWS expected the Enoree River to reach flood levels in the Whitmire area Sunday. The NWS said the waters will crest on Monday morning, but the warning will remain in effect until Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.

Flood advisories issued for Henderson, Transylvania counties in North Carolina, and Elbert County in Georgia expired Sunday morning.

"With the heaviest rain behind us, it is safe to say that we are mostly out of the woods with this system," Phaeton said.

High pressure building out of the west will help to salvage the second half of the weekend.

"With the showers continuing to push off to our east, we can look forward to a pleasant afternoon on Sunday as we begin our clean up," Phaeton said.

Phaeton forecasted that Sunday will bring mostly sunny skies as temperatures climb into the upper 50s across the Upstate and lower 50s for the mountains. Winds will be gentle out of the north and west between 5 and 10 mph.

"Clouds will build a bit to start off our work week as we prepare for a chance of showers Monday night into Tuesday," Phaeton said.
