GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Despite some sun in parts of the area this morning, you’ll want to keep your umbrella close by today!

A cold front over eastern Tennessee will slowly build east today, bringing with it a round of scattered showers and some thunderstorms. After waking up to some sunshine, scattered showers will continue to slowly build east, hitting the eastern mountains and some of the upstate by lunchtime.

As daytime heating picks up, we will likely see a few additional storms flare up in the eastern Upstate during the first half of the afternoon, then exit in time for the morning commute. Severe weather chances are very low. More likely, we will see a few of the storms produce heavy downpours or gusty winds. Keep your umbrella close, and stay weather aware today! Highs will range from around 70 in the mountains where clouds and showers arrive sooner, to around 80 degrees upstate thanks to the early sunshine.

Skies will clear tonight as a cooler and drier air mass builds in behind the departing cold front. Temperatures will take a dip back into the 40s, setting us up for a chilly start on Wednesday morning.

Back to dry and comfortable conditions for the remainder of the work week! Plenty of sun Wednesday through Friday, with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms eye a return over the weekend.
