GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Scattered thunderstorms will bring some welcome rain to the region on Monday!

Chances for more widespread showers and thunderstorms will increase into this afternoon and evening. This will not be a day-long rain, but some beneficial downpours are expected in parts of the upstate that have settled into minor drought conditions. Keep an umbrella within reach today, and stay alert for occasional downpours and wet spots on the roads. Highs will check in a bit below average, only reaching the low to mid 80s in most locations.

Leftover showers and a few thunderstorms will remain possible tonight, mostly shifting into the upstate. Mild and muggy conditions will hang on too, with lows headed for the upper 50s to mid 60s.

With the cold front still hovering just south of the region on Tuesday, mostly cloudy skies will continue for much of the region. Isolated storms will remain in the forecast as well, but chances will be greatest south of I-85. High temperatures will take a milder turn behind the cold front, slipping to the mid 70s in the mountains and around 80 degrees upstate. That’s close to 10 degrees below average for the end of June, but will make for a pleasant day all the same!

For the second half of the week, we’ll resume that “typical” Summer weather pattern of a mix of sun and clouds, chances for pop-up afternoon thunderstorms, and warm, muggy conditions. Highs Wednesday through Friday will hover in the low 80s across the mountains, and middle to upper 80s upstate.

Hotter weather will return in time for the upcoming 4th of July weekend. Highs by Saturday will range from the mid 80s to low 90s, with the continued chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. By the look of things now, Saturday looks safer overall if you have outdoor plans. Sunday may see more widespread storms, so that may be the day to shift to a back up plan for your holiday weekend. We’ll keep you posted!
