GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - After a few early-morning showers and storms, more are possible this afternoon!

Increasing sunshine will take over into the early afternoon hours. With the cold front moving overhead and daytime heating taking hold, we’ll likely see more showers and thunderstorms develop by mid-afternoon and carry into the first half of the evening. As we have seen going back to Sunday afternoon, an isolated storm will have the potential to become severe and could produce damaging winds and hail. Stay weather aware this afternoon, and be ready to head indoors if storms roll your way!

Thursday will be quieter as high pressure nudges in from the northwest. We could still see an isolated afternoon storm in the mountains, but chances will be quite low. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies, with temperatures remaining very warm in the mid 80s upstate and low 80s to the north.

Friday remains our biggest concern, and we continue to call for a First Alert Weather Day. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be especially widespread during the afternoon and evening hours, with heavy rain likely which could lead to localized flooding. Isolated severe storms will also be possible, with the threat for damaging winds and more hail. This will mean trouble for any outdoor events and plans on Friday, so make sure to stay tuned for updates!

Aside from the chance for an isolated storm on Saturday, the weekend is looking much quieter and more comfortable! Highs will range from the mid 70s to around 80 both Saturday and Sunday, with plenty of sun expected for Mother’s Day!
