Watching the tropics for increasing rain chances over the next 5 - FOX Carolina 21

Watching the tropics for increasing rain chances over the next 5-7 days

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

We’re watching the tropics closely for increasing chances for rain during the Memorial Day weekend into next week.

Today stays similar to Thursday – scattered showers and a few storms primarily during the afternoon and early evening hours. Expect highs in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday look wet at times, but there should be some intervals of sun…especially on Saturday. Development in the Gulf will track toward the central Gulf coast region where the heaviest rain totals are expected (coastal Florida panhandle and coastal Alabama).

Rain chances look to tick up locally beginning on Memorial Day and lasting through at least Wednesday as the remnants of the Gulf low drift across the southern states. Afternoon highs each day should hover near 80 degrees in the Upstate.

Rain totals over the next 5-7 days should reach the 2-4” range with locally higher amounts. Unfortunately, this will lead to some flood/flash flood potential for some spots.
