PICS: Heavy Rain Causing Problems; Changes Coming

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

We're seeing more rain and thunderstorms Wednesday, and it's causing flooding problems in areas across the Upstate.

Storm Team 7 forecasters say otherwise, you can expect more clouds than sun with high temperatures running below average once again.

And with all of the recent rain, the ground remains very saturated.

7 On Your Side has heard reports of flooding in some areas, including Anderson Road in Greenville County.  Officials were forced to close the roadway to motorists near White Horse Road Wednesday afternoon.  Officials tell us they've never seen it as bad as it has been.

But changes are on the way, according to Meteorologist Dan Bickford.

"The next couple of days should bring a little more in the way of sunshine, so our temperatures should climb," he explains.  "Rain chances don't leave, but showers and storms should be a little more hit-and-miss."

A cold front moves through Friday night into early Saturday.  Behind the front, somewhat drier air should move in.  This should finally shut down the rain chances for a couple of days, although isolated mountain thunder could return early next week.

    Dozens of people gathered Saturday afternoon to rally against the state's "Stand Your Ground," law, saying it amounts to "legal lynching." The group, Moms Demand Action, said the South Carolina law, first passed in 2006, causes gun violence and is exploited as a defense.
