GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Another warm day is ahead, but storms aren’t far off!

No need for a jacket as you head out this morning, with temperatures across the western Carolinas getting started in the mid 50s to low 60s. You won’t need the umbrella either, as we won’t have any rain falling like we did in the mountains on Tuesday morning!

Mostly cloudy skies will continue throughout the morning, eventually allowing some breaks of sun through in the afternoon. Clouds or not, our temperatures won’t take a hit. Expect highs to reach the 70s in the North Carolina mountains, while the Upstate cruises to around 80 degrees! Expect a slightly breezier day too, with SSW winds at 5-15 mph.

Clouds will gather again tonight in advance of a cold front tracking out of the central United States. Isolated showers or even a thunderstorm will be possible after midnight, but we’ll keep the main wave of activity out of the way until closer to daybreak Thursday. Lows will remain mild as the air turns muggier, falling to the upper 50s and low 60s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous in time for the morning commute on Thursday. Occasionally heavy downpours will continue to track east with the storms through midday, followed by some re-firing south and east of Greenville as we get some heating in the afternoon. It’s in those areas, where an isolated severe storm will be possible, so make sure you are keeping an eye on the weather!
