One more round of rain ends the week before clearing for this weekend. Temperatures stay well below normal for this time of year over the next seven days.
Temperatures stay in the upper 40s to low 50s for the rest of the day today with periods of rain.
All the rain clears out tonight, leaving sunshine for Saturday and Sunday. Highs will stay in the mid-50s for the Upstate and 40s for the mountains both days, while nights get downright cold. Saturday night will be frosty in the Upstate with lows down in the mid-30s, while the mountains can expect a hard freeze in the upper 20s.
Due to the expected cold, there is a Freeze Watch in place for the Upstate, NE Georgia, and Polk, Rutherford, and McDowell counties in the mountains from Saturday night until Sunday morning.
Another round of rain arrives from Monday into Tuesday, leading up to the coldest night of the season so far. Tuesday night lows will drop to 30 in the Upstate and 24 for the mountains! We might even see a few snowflakes near the TN border toward daybreak Wednesday.
