Warm, Wet Weather Returns to Carolinas

Incoming rain could further impact already-swollen river basins.

After some crazy weather involving tornadoes, flooding, and snow all within 48 hours, things have finally calmed down for us here in the western Carolinas for the second half of the weekend. Enjoy it! The pleasant conditions won’t last long. Expect clouds to begin rolling in overnight Sunday into Monday, with lows in the mid-to-upper 30s. The warming trend continues for Monday afternoon, despite the increased cloud coverage, as highs should top out in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Another batch of rain moves through late Monday into Tuesday, which could be heavy at times. Most of the WCCB Charlotte viewing area should see at least a half-inch of rain through Tuesday afternoon. Flooding may be an issue once again for the western Carolinas, as already-swollen river basins and saturated ground may not be able to soak up the incoming rain. Stay tuned for more updates as the forecast becomes clearer.
