Friday morning storms blow through Upstate


Strong storms are rolling out of the Upstate and mountains early Friday morning, leaving some without power in their wake.

Damaging winds and heavy downpours were the main threats from the thunderstorms as they pushed through during the morning hours.

As the storms blew through the Upstate, Duke Energy reported scattered power outages across the area. About 140 customers in the Edwards Road area near Wade Hampton Boulevard were without power. And nearly 100 customers near south Lake Hartwell in Anderson County were also without power.

Laurens Electric Co-Op was reporting more than 500 customers without power in Greenville County, with several outages reported in the Hudson and Pelham Road areas.

The severe storms also triggered a some severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings that quickly required.

We should clear through Friday afternoon, with breezy winds and highs in the 60s.

Saturday morning will be colder than the past few mornings. We will get into the upper 20s in the mountains and mid 30s in the Upstate. It gets milder by the afternoon as highs reach the 60s again under sunny skies.

Sunday will be a lot like Saturday, but we'll notice a few extra clouds.
