GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Mostly clear skies and chilly temperatures will see us out the door this Monday morning. Expect readings to start the day in the 30s across our mountain locations in North Carolina, while the Upstate and northeast Georgia start out in the 40s to low 50s.

While you’ll want some long sleeves during the morning, make sure you can set them aside this afternoon! With mostly sunny skies throughout the day, temperatures will climb into the mid 60s to low 70s across the region, all with a pleasant southerly breeze at 6-12 mph. Go ahead and take your lunch break outside today, get out for an afternoon or even walk, and enjoy it while you can! Skies will stay mostly clear tonight with lows in the 40s before storms return on Tuesday.

Don’t be fooled by mostly sunny skies on Tuesday morning! Take your umbrella with you on your way out the door as any morning sunshine will quickly give way to returning clouds, and a few light showers as early as midday. A period of heavy rain and thunderstorms will follow between 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM, making for poor travel conditions well into the evening rush hour. Tomorrow’s thunderstorms will bring the potential for isolated severe weather, with the threat of damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes. Make sure to stay weather aware throughout the afternoon and early-evening! Highs Tuesday will top the mid 60s to around 70.

Conditions will quiet down, but only briefly Tuesday night into the first part of Wednesday. Wednesday starts dry, but clouds will begin to gather ahead of another storm system that will bring a fresh round of thunderstorms to the region Wednesday evening into the overnight period. Following highs in the mid 70s to around 80 and an increase in humidity, a new storm system will roll into the region with ingredients possibly even more favorable for severe weather overnight on Wednesday. Make sure to keep checking in on Fox Carolina for updates over the next two days!
