Cooler temperatures expected for work week

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

After a stretch of lovely weather, we are looking to see a bit of a change for the next few days.

We saw a streak of four straight days with temperatures above normal with the last two days hitting the lower 80s! Unfortunately we will be seeing a shift in temperatures towards the cooler side as clouds build across the Carolinas and a cold front approaches.

Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout the day on Monday with scattered showers pushing across the upstate and western North Carolina. The upstate can possibly see a thunderstorm embedded in this system as the day progresses.

In terms of Temperature, we will stay in the lower 70s and upper 60s throughout the day, but an approaching cold front will bring temperatures even cooler! Tuesday night will see lows drop down into the 30s! We will possibly see a freeze occur for parts of western North Carolina for the overnight areas!

Wednesday will only peak in the lower 60s and upper 50s despite the return of sun to the area. For this time of year we usually see highs in the lower 70s across the upstate and upper 60s across the mountains. We will likely stay below that normal high until the end of the work week.

    First Alert Forecast: widespread heat, weekend storms likely

    Friday, June 23 2017 8:08 PM EDT2017-06-24 00:08:50 GMT

    A seasonably hot and humid summer air mass will bathe the Cape Fear Region into the weekend. Moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy and the approach of a front will boost rain chances at times. Following the front, a dose of marginally cooler air with lower rain chances appears possible if not likely by the middle of next week.

    Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
