Cooler Tuesday, storms hang in the forecast
GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Milder conditions on Tuesday, but the chance for storms lingers.
A cold front remains draped along the I-85 corridor today, leading to a divide in conditions across the western Carolinas. Behind the boundary, drier air has filtered in over the mountains, and should help to fend off most wet weather today beyond the low chance for an isolated afternoon storm. South of I-85, humid air remains in place, and combined with the presence of the cold front will leave a greater chance for isolated morning storms to continue and for new isolated storms to develop this afternoon. Highs regionwide will be held much lower, reaching the upper 70s in the mountains and around 80 degrees upstate. Pleasantly warm, but well below average for late-June!
Isolated showers and thunderstorms will remain possible tonight along with mostly cloudy skies. Lows will dip to the low and middle 60s
On Wednesday, we’ll return to a more typical summertime pattern with a mix of sun and clouds and hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. We’ll remain on that track through the start of the upcoming holiday weekend, as highs gradually moderate from the low and mid 80s to mid and upper 80s by Saturday.
Sunday and Independence Day face a greater risk for widespread thunderstorms, but neither look like a washout at this time. Rather, you may want to have a backup for your holiday weekend plans if they take you outdoors. We will keep you updated over the next few days!
