Tuesday and Wednesday will be the picks of the week, as we get back to some of the warmth we enjoyed last week. With a more stable air mass in place, we’ll enjoy mostly sunny skies both days with highs climbing well into the 70s! These days will also be the calm before the storm as things take a more active turn for the second half of the week.

Thursday and Friday will be our next FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS. A new storm system developing off the the Rockies will begin to head east on Thursday. Southerly flow and a stalled frontal boundary out ahead of it will begin to funnel showers in over the region Thursday morning, with steadier rain persisting throughout the day in the mountains as scattered showers track across the Upstate. Steady or not, the rain could be heavy at times and may make for tough travel conditions. The main area of low pressure will arrive with a powerful cold front on Friday, leading to around of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Some of these storms will have the potential to become severe. We will be keeping a close eye on this situation all week, so make sure to check back for updates here on Fox Carolina.
