Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 4:38PM

Active Night

A potent low is moving eastward across the Upstate of South Carolina tonight. Strong storms to our south are robbing some of the northward Gulf moisture transport. We still expect heavier rain this evening and tonight. Thunder remains in the realm of possibility. Showers linger into Monday before dry high pressure builds Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will remain mild for January standards, until a strong cold front slashes prices reducing the price tag to more winter-like temperatures by Friday.

Forecast Discussion

Complex low pressure shifts east across the Upstate of South Carolina tonight. The southern track keeps us locked underneath an in-situ wedge, resulting in cooler temperatures, more fog, and limited thunder potential. We still expect heavy rain tonight of greater than 1 inch.

Rain tapers to showers Monday, lingering for much of the day, especially along NW facing slopes with flow turning northwesterly. The NW wind will be gusty at times late Monday and Monday night across the mountains.

High pressure builds Tuesday, offering more sunshine and dry conditions.

Wednesday, southwesterly flow will promote warm temperatures and pleasant weather conditions.

But a strong cold front will blow through early Thursday, putting a cap on temperatures. More wintry-like weather conditions return Thursday night into next weekend. Expect colder temperatures and a period of northwest flow snow showers and flurries across the northwestern slopes of the mountains.
