Tuesday morning’s showers should give way to mostly sunny skies by afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Greer, S.C.

A flood advisory, meanwhile, remains in effect in Lowell in Gaston County along the south fork of the Catawba River until 10:15 a.m.

A flood advisory also remains until 11 a.m. in northeastern Union County and southern Cabarrus County.

At 5 a.m., the automated river gauge along Rocky River above Irish Buffalo Creek continued to indicate some flooding, the weather service reported.

Although rainfall has ended over the river basin, drainage from streams and creeks to the west could cause some flooding along Pharr Mills Road near Harrisburg and Stallings, Poplar Tent, Sequoia and Mount Pleasant roads south of Concord, according to the weather service.

In northern Iredell County, Bussell and Williamsburg roads in the Olin community were flooded, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation.

All sunshine is expected on Veterans Day, although it could become partly cloudy Wednesday night.

Thursday has a slim chance of rain at 20 percent. Thursday night should be mostly clear and Friday all sunshine.

Temperatures are forecast to warm to highs of 67 Tuesday, 66 Wednesday, 69 Thursday and 62 Friday.

Widespread frost, however, could move in early Friday with a low of about 37, and again Saturday night, when a low of about 35 is forecast.
