What impacts could we see here in the Carolinas and Georgia?

Tuesday, the remnants of Ida will be moving to our northwest, but will bring the tail end of its moisture our way. Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday we will see a better chance for scattered showers & storms. Isolated heavy rain & isolated severe weather will be possible, but the core of remnants look to remain well to our north. Still, scattered rainfall amounts of 2-4” will be possible for western North Carolina, with amounts between an ½” and 1” possible in spots across the Upstate.

As the moisture from Ida clears out early Thursday morning, much drier and more comfortable air arrives. Highs will drop back into the 80s with very low humidity. It looks like this theme will even stick around for the holiday weekend as of now.
