Tornado Watch Issued For Most Of Upstate Friday

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Forecasters are calling for showers and thunderstorms starting Friday afternoon for parts of the Carolinas.

Storm Team 7 Chief Meteorologist Christy Henderson says a cold front will push through Friday evening.  This is expected to generate the chance for severe weather at times.

The eastern part of the area will have the best chance for late afternoon storms.

A Tornado Watch has been issued by the National Weather service for most Upstate counties until 9 p.m.

Highs for Friday will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Some events, including the Azalea Festival in Pickens, have been canceled Friday due to the threat of severe weather.  Get the full list here.

Skies are expected to clear overnight.  With the passing of the cold front, freezing temperatures are likely at higher elevations in the North Carolina Mountains.  Because of that, the National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for some counties.

The weekend should be sunny with lower humidity.  Highs will stay in the 60s.  There is the possibility for a few showers late Sunday night.
