It’s going to rain all day in Anderson. But a severe weather system in Alabama and Georgia today that could cause tornadoes will likely skip the area as it migrates to the north and east over the next 24 hours.
Bryan McAvoy, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Greer, said such systems get violent during the heat of the day — which is what the Atlanta area faces in a few hours.
By the time the system reaches the Upstate, McAlvoy said, the naturally cooler and calmer conditions overnight will remove damaging winds.
By Tuesday, as the system reaches North Carolina midday, those folks could see some dangerous winds again, McAlvoy said. There is a very small chance, he said, of a severe storm occurring here.
“It looks like this system is going to miss you to the west and then to the east,” McAlvoy said.
The forecast calls for rain all day today and highs in the mid 60s. Winds will be to the northeast at 5 to 10 mph. Expect patchy fog tonight with ongoing rain and drizzle with temperatures hovering in the 60s.
There’s a 50 percent chance of rain until midnight Tuesday with lows in the upper 50s and a southwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.
Wednesday and Thursday will be mostly clear with temperatures hitting the upper 70s or even 80 degrees.
The area will turn partly cloudy on Friday with overnight lows in the mid 50s and daytimes in the low to mid 70s through the weekend.
Sunrise is at about 7:25 a.m. this week with sunset at about 7:15 p.m.
