After a dreary and chilly start to the week, we're looking at a slow warm-up and progressively more sunshine! Highs will be near 80 by Friday!
Clouds slowly clear today, helping temperatures warm to the mid-60s Upstate, and upper 50s in the mountains by mid-afternoon. High elevations will be breezy, with wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour.
Dry conditions will dominate for the remainder of the week, with temperatures slowly climbing back to average and above. Highs Wednesday reach near 70 degrees, with Thursday and Friday reaching the upper 70s to lower 80s. Normal for this time of year is 71 degrees in the Upstate.
Showers move in this weekend, but the best chance for rain will be Sunday. A few strong storms could happen toward mid afternoon on Sunday with strong wind and downpours, so we'll fine tune that forecast as it gets closer.
