We're seeing some rain move into our western counties right now. Rain is showing up on our Pickens County weather camera.
But - so far the eastern part of the state is dry this afternoon.
Expect the rain to spread across the entire area tonight. I'm anticipating some flurries north of Hwy 278 during the overnight as the precipitation and colder air begin to overlap. Temperatures tonight will fall into the upper 3os so if you have any plans tonight just remember it's going to be cold and wet. The NAM is showing rain covering most of the state at midnight.
I think the system will be a fairly fast mover and clear out of the state early tomorrow. We will likely see some lingering clouds through 10am, but the skies should clear rapidly during the afternoon with a brisk northwest wind at about 15-20mph. The NAM model shows the rain sliding well to the south Saturday night.
I think we'll see some of the coldest temperatures so far Saturday night into Sunday. Expect overnight lows in the mid 20s. Sunday will be sunny with highs only the mid 40s.
If you have New Year's Eve plans, you can count on seeing some rain toward midnight. We will continue to see rain through New Year's Day. The gray and wet weather pattern continues.
