GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A First Alert Weather Day has been declared for next Tuesday, widespread rain will be moving in potentially impacting people on the roadways. We could see 1-2″ of rainfall, which would be more than we’ve seen for much of the fall.


Speaking of the rain, some are waking up to light spotty showers Friday morning mainly on the eastern side of the Upstate. That will be the continued case, although most will remain dry with the best chance of rain arriving late Friday night into early Saturday morning for areas on the NC/TN line.


Most of the rain is out by Saturday at daybreak. Saturday and Sunday will be beautiful, with loads of sunshine and highs in the low 70s to upper 60s. Nights will get chilly, mainly by Saturday night. Keep an eye out for a few shooting stars as the Leonid Meteor shower will be peaking.


Looking ahead to the weather next week, including the Thanksgiving holiday, shows a potential for rain early-mid week. A strong system is expected to impact a number of states across the U.S., crossing our region likely Monday - Wednesday. Tuesday looks to be the most impactful day, with widespread rain likely. Which, is why we decided to declare a First Alert Weather Day. While showers will be possible Monday evening, widespread rain (potentially moderate or heavy at times) looks to be the case on Tuesday. Therefore, plan on wet roadways and hectic travel here at home or even surrounding states.


Wednesday looks drier, besides the chance for some leftover precipitation lingering in the mountains early that morning before sunshine returns for all into Thanksgiving.
