SkyWatch Weather on Saturday June 24th, 2017.
Moisture is still lingering in WNC and the Upstate, with a cold front moving through the area later today which could bring a few showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Temperatures are mild this morning thanks to lingering moisture. Highs across the mountains stay just a bit below average though thanks to clouds and potential rainfall, mostly in the upper 70's and low 80's in the mountains - mid and upper 80's for the foothills and the Upstate.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop in the early afternoon, with a better chance for showers along and south of the I-40 corridor. There is a small risk (5%) for a few thunderstorms to produce severe wind gusts across the Southern Blue Ridge, the foothills, the Upstate, and areas east into the Piedmont.
Drier air and gusty winds begin to move in during the afternoon and evening, with a much cooler and drier night ahead. Lows dip into the upper 50's and low 60's across the Blue Ridge, with mid 60's for the Upstate.
A few clouds linger on Sunday but drier air will be in place with highs in the Upper 70's!
Even cooler weather is possible into early next week.
