Wednesday will be another great day to get out with highs well into the 70s. Despite the returning clouds, conditions will remain dry through the evening commute, before showers arrive in some of our western communities after 9:00 PM. Those showers will develop into a steadier and heavier rain, especially across the mountains, by Thursday morning.

Thursday and Friday remain 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.
