Heavy rain in the forecast for the Golden Corner

The National Weather Service at Greenville/Spartanburg is forecasting heavy rain for the Golden Corner on Labor Day.  Numerous thunderstorms are expected across the region Monday and Monday night.  The biggest threat in the forecast is heavy rainfall and lightning.  Isolated flash flooding of streams and creeks is a possibility should multiple storms affect the same area.  A few of the storms may produce brief, damaging wind gusts and isolated, weak tornados cannot be ruled out.  To blame is the dissipating remnants of Tropical Storm Isaac and deep tropical moisture over the area, which will linger into Thursday.  The threat of heavy rain showers continues Tuesday and Wednesday, and possibly into Thursday.  Flash Flood watches or warnings are possible later this week, but right now, it’s too early to pin down any high risk flood areas.  The Labor Day high temperature is expected at 82 degrees, about 10 degrees less than Sunday.  Stay with 96.3 WGOG and wgog.com for the latest weather developments.
