Western Carolinas see soggy start to week

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

As rain moved across the area Monday morning, the wet weather proved a little much for a downtown Greenville road and likely slowed down some on their morning commute.

While many woke up to rain, they also woke up to much milder temperatures compared with the past week.

Temperatures were in the 50s and 60s in some areas during the early morning hours. They will rise to the low 60s as the rain moves out.

Showers are forecast to move through the area by about noon. During the night, temperatures will drop about 20 degrees for Tuesday.

Tuesday will be much colder with highs in the 40s and scattered showers.

Expect more rain through Wednesday morning, then it'll clear out and sunshine will be back in the forecast by Thursday. 

Rain saturates downtown Greenville road

The past year has been a wet one for the Upstate and runoff from the rain proved a problem for some downtown Greenville residents Monday morning.

Crews had to block off a drain with sandbags along River Street near Court Street because of the runoff. They said the rain had been running into an apartment building.

One lane of River Street was closed as crews worked to stop the runoff.
