GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The skies are starting to clear across the Upstate and western Carolinas, though a scattered drizzle could still pop up Tuesday morning.

And with the cold temperatures, a light glaze of ice was possible on raised surfaces like cars, trees and a few overpasses or bridges.

A strong northeasterly wind will keep temperatures cooler than average around the Upstate, in the upper 40s with mostly cloudy skies. Clouds will break up enough to see on and off sunshine by mid-day, though isolated areas of drizzle will still be possible.

Mountain towns will see a southeasterly breeze, and that will help gain some momentum in temperatures, rising above the Upstate, with highs in the low 50s. Tonight, a cold front will begin to approach, bringing a few showers

The overnight cloud cover will help to keep temperatures above freezing with lows in the upper 30s.

Wednesday is the final day of the winter season, and highs will be warmer than Tuesday, reaching the 50s to low 60s. While a few clouds will hang around through the morning, much sunnier weather will move in late day.

The first day of spring on Thursday follows suit, with mostly sunny skies and highs reaching into the upper 60s. Expect sunshine again on Friday, with another round of warmth in the mid-60s to low 70s.
