GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Today is a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for potential severe storms!

An approaching cold front will give rise to a new round of pop-up showers and thunderstorms starting around midday in the mountains, and spreading into parts of the upstate through early-evening. The storms themselves will be isolated, so not everyone will be impacted, but the possibility exists for a few storms to become severe, so you’ll want to be keeping a close eye on the weather conditions in your area later today! Expect very warm and humid conditions too, with highs climbing into the low 80s across the mountains, and upper 80s upstate.

Storms will depart after 6:00 PM, paving the way for clearing skies and drier air to filter in behind the cold front tonight. Lows will dip to the middle and upper 50s by daybreak, with a light NNW breeze for most of us.

We’re cranking up the heat as the week rolls on! Tuesday will be a more pleasant, sunny day overall as highs top the low to mid 80s with lower humidity. Wednesday marks the beginning of a stretch of 90s that will take us through Saturday, while highs in the mountains climb toward the middle to upper 80s. We’ll look for plenty of sunshine those days, but Thursday and Saturday will bring a few hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms.
