Good Morning Folks! We have a fairly raw day ahead of us with temps only rising into the low – mid 40’s as cloudy skies sit overhead and light – moderate showers develop across the region. Freezing rain is expected across the NW part of the state, mainly around Boone to Marion and further points north into Virginia, while our region contends with a cold rain. It is possible the highest elevations see some freezing rain fall before midday, however it will be short lived as the upper levels warm up to above freezing. Most locations will pick up a half inch of rain before sunset and showers look to continue into Monday as temps settle into the low 40’s across most of the region. The highest rainfall totals will be found across Cashiers, Highlands, Lake Toxaway and other towns/areas along the southern highlands plateau.
Monday features continued shower activity, mainly before the early – mid afternoon hours and another half inch of rain is likely across the region before sunset. Temps will be able to rise into the low 40’s – low 50’s as southwesterly flow increases with deep moisture accompanying the flow, which is the reason showers will continue throughout the next 24 hours or so into Monday afternoon. We take a break from the rain Monday evening, however we have another round of light rain overnight into Tuesday morning with temps only settling into the upper 30’s – low 40’s. Showers should pick up before midnight and continue... click here for more
