GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - We’re drying out and clearing up!

Clouds will begin to decrease quickly after mid-morning as some drier air begins to filter in behind the passing cold front. Temperatures will climb out of muggy 50s and low 60s, and into some more pleasant mid 60s to low 70s this afternoon to go along with the returning sunshine. It will be a breezy afternoon though, with west-northwesterly winds clocking in anywhere from 10-20 mph, and gusting as high as 30 mph.

Expect mostly clear skies for tonight, with temperatures taking a dip back into some chilly 40s, and even some upper 30s in the mountains! Winds will ease up slightly overnight, but any little bit will add some extra bite to the chill.

We’ll continue to cool down as we move toward the weekend, thanks to a sprawling upper-level low that will settle over the Ohio Valley. That system will drag a late-season shot of colder air in across the eastern United States, with a good amount of that chilly air finding us here in the western Carolinas. Highs Friday will range from the low 50s to around 60 with windy conditions and scattered light showers. Saturday sees the worst of the chilly air, though! Expect highs in the middle to upper 50s upstate, with folks in the mountains likely not getting out of the 40s!

We’ll warm right back up from Sunday onward, but be ready to layer back up as the weekend begins!
