Dense fog from Tuesday morning will thin out a bit heading into this afternoon. Some patches of fog could linger here and there, so continue to stay alert in your travels. Fog or not, skies will remain cloudy, with scattered showers breaking out across the mountains. An isolated shower or two could stray in across the Upstate, but these will be fewer and farther between. On a positive note, we will hang on to the mild temperatures for one more day, as highs reach the mid 50s in some mountain spots to low and mid 60s elsewhere.

A slow-moving cold front will finally move out of Tennessee and across our area tonight. This will bring a more widespread round of mostly light showers with it, setting us up for more wet and foggy conditions in the morning. Lows will remain fairly mild in the 40s to around 50.

With the cold front expected to shift southeast of us on Wednesday, temperatures will take a cooler turn back toward the upper 40s and low 50s. Showers are likely to be most common early in the morning, followed by a mostly dry daytime period. A stray shower can’t be ruled out, but chances appear to be low until evening. Rain will slowly become steadier and more widespread Wednesday evening into Wednesday night, leading us into Thursday’s First Alert Weather Day.

Rain will begin fairly light on Thursday morning, but expect a soggy commute. Rain gear will be a must, as the rain will only pick up in intensity after midday with a new storm system moving in from the Gulf Coast. Periods of occasionally heavy rain will persist well into Thursday night, with the already-saturated ground leading to an increased risk of flooding. Rainfall amounts will range from 1″-2″ for most locations, on top of whatever rain we pick up before Thursday.

The rain clears out on Friday making way for a drier but colder weekend. Highs on Friday are in the upper 40s to the low 50s but then dip big time to highs in the upper 30s to low 40s on Saturday. A slight warm up on Sunday, but highs still get stuck in the 40s before returning to more seasonal highs in the upper 40s to low 50s early next week.
