Sunday brings much needed rain to Carolinas

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

Look for light winds and a chance of light rain to help in the extinguishing efforts for Sunday.

After a cold start to the day, Sunday will usher in more cloud cover for the afternoon. Highs will make a run for the mid-50s in the Upstate and low 50s in western North Carolina.

Light winds will aid in fighting the wild fires as the Upstate likely sees a northeast flow between three and eight miles per hour. Mountain towns will see light and variable winds throughout the day so smoke is likely to linger and settle into some valley regions.

Some much needed rainfall will approach from the south and brings drops to the western Carolinas late in the morning and early afternoon. Wet weather will likely linger into the evening but remain relatively light throughout.

The wet weather will potentially end a 36 day dry spell at GSP which sits just one day shy of the fifth longest dry spell in GSP history.

The wet weather will likely aid in fighting the wildfires throughout the day on Sunday as well.

Finally, Sunday night will likely fall into the upper 30s to near 40 overnight. Monday will bring back the sunshine and dry conditions as temperatures peak in the low to mid-60s.
