Storm threat returns Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

After many areas saw storms on Tuesday, another round is heading in on Wednesday.

As storms moved in, there were even reports of funnel clouds, but nothing was confirmed. The main issue Tuesday night was with straight-line winds.

The best chance for heavy thunderstorms will be after 2 p.m. on Wednesday, with more people seeing rain on Wednesday than Tuesday. A few small showers started to pop up after noon in the Upstate and in the mountains. Track the storms with FOX Carolina Radar 3D here.

A few strong storms are possible, with torrential downpours and frequent lightning the main threat. A steady line of storms are not as likely to move through as more areas will see "pop-up" style storms.

With lightning the main threat, some areas may be spared storm damage - unlike Westview Avenue in Greenville, where Tuesday's storms left behind damage to some homes and cars.

Highs will stay very warm in the upper 80s for the Upstate and low 80s in the mountains on Wednesday. High humidity will make it feel even hotter.

Storms will stay in the forecast through the weekend. Each afternoon we'll be watching closely for pop-up showers and storms.
