If it’s more spring weather you want, look no further than this up coming week! We start off Monday morning with lows in the low to mid 40s in the Upstate to the mid to upper 30s in the mountains and jump into highs in the low to mid 60s across the area by Monday afternoon. Look for a partly cloudy sky through the day with a small chance for showers in the mountains, mainly along the North Carolina/Tennessee border. Winds kick up through the day with sustained winds 5 to 15 mph with gusts 20 to 25 mph.

By Tuesday, highs are around 70 in the Upstate with mid 60s in the mountains. There’s a slightly better chance for a few passing showers in the mountains and a small risk for a sprinkle or two in the Upstate. It continues to be breezy with winds nearing advisory criteria in the mountains. Wednesday is quiet and even warmer with morning lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s and afternoon highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Look for a partly cloudy to mostly cloudy sky.

Thursday we’re flirting with record highs. Our forecast high for Greenville is 78° which ties the record from 2018. And in Asheville, the forecast high is 76°, which also ties the record, this one from 1982. And we are likely going to see record high morning lows as well as we wake up to the upper 50s to mid 60s. Expect a warm breezy during the day with just a small chance for a passing shower in the mountains.
