Sunny skies start the week, allowing highs to approach 60 degrees in the Upstate while mountain towns make a run for the low 50s.
Winds will be relatively light out of the north in the Upstate but expect breezy conditions for the higher elevations of western North Carolina. Winds will flow out of the north between 8 and 13 miles per hour with gusts reaching as fast as 20 miles per hour at times.
Winds in the mountain towns will cause concern for the spreading of current wildfires while lighter winds in the Upstate will likely contribute to air quality concerns.
Cold temperatures return once again late Monday evening as lows fall into the low 30s and mid-20s. Our next chance for rain will be minimal, but looks to arrive on Wednesday evening with a fast moving cold front.
