Dry weather will dominate for Thanksgiving week, but there is a slight chance for a few showers late Wednesday night. Otherwise, expect plenty of sunshine and seasonably cool temperatures.
An Air Quality Alert is in effect through midnight Tuesday night because of light winds and higher smoke concentrations in the atmosphere. All western NC counties, except Graham, are under the alert, and Oconee, Pickens, Greenville and Anderson counties in the Upstate are included.
Sunny skies will be the rule throughout the day today with highs warming into the low 60s for the Upstate and upper 50s in the mountains. Tonight drops back to the 30s with a few clouds.
Wednesday will bring increasing clouds and a slight chance for rain by the evening. Highs will warm into the low 60s for the Upstate and upper 50s in the mountains.
Thanksgiving Day is going to be pleasant with highs in the 60s area-wide under partly cloudy skies. Any early showers leftover from Wednesday night will dry out as the sun comes up. Thanksgiving night will be chilly in the 40s for all of those heading out for Black Friday sales.
Sunny skies will continue into the weekend, but there is some hope for much needed rain by early next week. We’ll keep you posted!
