A wet start to the week, with some flooding possible by Tuesday

Partly sunny skies prevail on Sunday with highs again rising to near 70 degrees, which is right around the climatological norm for late May. Rain will be heavy at times with some flooding due to poor drainage. Highs will be warmer in the upper 70s to around 80° but certainly could be cooler if there's more rain that keeps temperatures cooler.

Another system will dive into the area on Wednesday.

Spotty to scattered showers and thunderstorms will form this afternoon along a passing cold front in the southern mountains and Upstate with peeks of sun and highs in the middle 70s to near 80 degree until then. We could see anywhere from a half inch to an inch of rain. Wednesday looks to have a break from rain chances but the extra clouds stick around and temperatures are in the mid-70s. Showers and possible storms especially in the afternoon.

Monday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms, especially in the morning. Mostly cloudy for Thursday with a few showers and even a rumble of thunder.

SpaceX Falcon 9 Lofts Its Heaviest Satellite Into Orbit
Last year, an explosion during fueling destroyed a Falcon 9 rocket and its payload, grounding the fleet for months. Weighing in at almost 6,100 kg, the satellite is the heaviest load ever delivered by a SpaceX Falcon rocket.

Finally, it is looking like a dry day on Friday! Warmer - 77° Thursday and back into the 80s Friday. Lows in the low and mid 60s.

The sky remains partly to mostly cloudy this afternoon as a boundary stalls to our south today. Temperatures will remain in the 60s with a southerly breeze at 10-15 miles per hour. The high will be 76, after a morning low of 65.

Tuesday: Rain with a possible thunderstorm (60%).

The rest of the week looks unsettled with a little rain or showers expected each day as an upper level low remains over the area. Northeast winds at 9 miles per hour.
