GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Sunday night saw stormy conditions across western North Carolina and parts of the Upstate, leaving behind power outages, storm damage and breezy conditions on Monday.

There were dozens of reports of downed trees and possible wind damage in Madison, Buncombe, Henderson, Jackson, Haywood, Burke and Rutherford counties.

According to Duke Energy, a few hundred customers were still without power Monday morning. Later in the morning, about 1,000 were without power in the Clyde and Waynesville areas,

Along Haywood Road near Michigan Avenue in west Asheville, power crews were out repairing a downed line Monday morning. And in Rutherford County, trees damaged a home and cars at a Rutherfordton man's home.

With the rain chance dropping, look to see temperatures climb into the lower 90s in the Upstate and lower 80s in the mountains.

Winds will be breezy throughout the afternoon, mainly out of the North and west between 5 and 15 miles per hour with gusts reaching over 20 mph. There will also be a slight chance of an isolated rain shower developing late in the day across the mountains.

Temperatures will continue to decrease slightly as the week continues with rain chances holding off until the end of the workweek.
