COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – Rain continues to be possible throughout the day with storms possible tonight!
First alert headlines
- First weather alert day Tuesday will see rounds of heavy rain, especially later in the day and tonight, with the possibility of thunderstorms.
- We’re dry until Wednesday afternoon.
- Cooler weather for Thanksgiving, with plenty of sunshine mixing with clouds.
- Limited rain is possible on Black Friday, but is expected to have minimal impacts.
Summary of the first alert
Good morning! Tuesday is the first weather alert day, as rain on and off will create wet roads, potentially slowing holiday travel.
A second round of moderate to scattered heavy rain is likely late morning into the afternoon, before another round of rain and a few storms arrives on Tuesday evening and tonight, as the forecast cold front moves through the Midlands. We could have some gusty winds gusting to 30-35mph tonight as the front slides across the Midlands.
Most rain amounts will be between a half inch and an inch of rain across the Midlands, with slightly higher amounts possible in intermittent areas, if some thunderstorms can hold out with the front’s final push.
Some early rain should stick around into Wednesday morning, but generally things will dry out in the afternoon, with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Thanksgiving Day looks nice with a mix of sunshine and clouds, but it will be a bit cooler, with high temperatures mostly in the lower 60s.
A few scattered showers are possible on Black Friday, but otherwise we look mainly dry for the weekend!
