GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Following a warm and sunny weekend, we’re in for our warmest day of the year so far on Monday!

High pressure remains in place just offshore of the Carolinas today, and that will mean another round of mostly sunny skies following this morning’s 6:45 AM sunrise! After highs topped the upper 70s to low 80s over the weekend, we’ll see the mercury climb a little higher today. Expect readings to top the low to mid 80s regionwide, putting us around ten degrees above average for late-April! Light southwesterly breezes today at 5-10 mph.

Scattered clouds will begin to creep in tonight, well in advance of a cold front sweeping out of the central United States. Most of us will stay dry overnight, but a stray shower could develop in the mountains closer to daybreak. Lows will remain on the milder side in the mid 50s to low 60s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will break out with the arrival of the cold front on Tuesday. Activity will pick up in earnest around mid-morning in the mountains, and gradually build east across the Upstate into the first half of the afternoon. Heavy downpours and gusty winds will be possible with the storms as they pass through, but severe weather is not expected. Keep an umbrella on-hand and keep an eye to the sky, but disruptions from the storms is expected to be kept to a minimum. Highs will range from the low 70s in the mountains, to low 80s upstate.

Back to sunshine and warm conditions for the second half of the week! Wednesday through Saturday will bring us a mix of sun and clouds, with highs mostly in the 70s before the return of some 80s this weekend.
