Mostly cloudy, warm and humid today with afternoon temperatures in the middle 80s.  Rain chances will remain low for most of the day, though there will be a few spotty showers that break out late in the day, especially in the mountains.

Scattered showers will drift from south to north across the WBTV viewing area tonight with lows in the mild 60s.

You’ll need your rain gear and will probably want to allow a little extra time for your commute both Tuesday and Wednesday, as showers and thunderstorms will be numerous. Because of the increased rain chances and cloud cover, temperatures will be in the mid 70s Tuesday before rebounding to near 80° late Wednesday.

Wednesday is the autumn equinox, officially at 3:20 pm, and it will feel a lot more like fall, as cooler and drier air moves into the Carolinas Thursday through the weekend behind Wednesday’s cold front.

Thursday through Sunday will feature morning temperatures in the 40s and 50s, with afternoon high temperatures mainly in the 70s, under mostly sunny skies.
