The Greer Chamber of Commerce made an exception feeling good about an all-day rain in GreerToday. The last day in July will be memorable in the relief the rains are bringing to the drought-stricken Upstate.

Cars parked a little bit closer to Trade Street businesses and restaurants today as steady rain drenched downtown. It just made for more requests for soup at downtown restaurants.

Rain. What a sight to see and feel today in Greer.

The steady, soaking rain began falling at 8:50 this morning and has continued through most of the day. As of 6 p.m. rainfall measured 2.7 inches at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport at Greer, the upstate's official weather station. Flash floor warnings were posted until 8 p.m. tonigh.

It was a welcome relief from the drought-stricken greater Greer area.

The forecast calls for continued showers with a 65 percent through the rest of the day falling to 30 percent later this evening. There is only a 20 percent chance of a thunderstorm Wednesday with temperatures steadily climbing to 90 degrees through the mid-90s later in the week.

The lunch business in downtown Greer was brisk. Some high school football teams moved their practice times or worked out inside before lunch.
