Christmas might come early for the western Carolinas in terms of receiving the gift of soaking rain!
A cold is expected to move in Monday night along with an upper level trough that will generate energy and draw in plentiful moisture from the Gulf of Mexico.
This could be mean multiple inches of rain from Monday night through Wednesday for many places that are in extreme to exceptional drought, which is the worst drought in our area since 2007.
It is still 3-4 days away, so while the forecast could change, it's looking good that at least some much-needed wet weather will make it's way in.
Ahead of this system, we’ll stay dry and seasonal today and tomorrow with highs in the middle 60s in the Upstate and near 60 in the mountains with abundant sunshine. Overnight lows will drop back into the 30s, so bundle up!
Rain could arrive as early as late Monday night in our westernmost areas and last on and off all the way through Wednesday.
