Recent sightings of clowns at two Greenville, South Carolina apartment complexes have led to international media coverage, but the sightings are not the first of this type, and one theory is that the latest ones could be connected to promotion for an upcoming film.

Clowns have allegedly been spotted over the past two weeks at Emerald Commons and at Fleetwood Manor. Both children and adults have reported seeing clowns near wooded areas. The Greenville County Sheriff's Department has investigated and increased patrols in those areas, but deputies said they have not seen anyone in clown clothing and no one has been able to provide photos or videos of the clowns.   

One theory about the sightings is that they could be connected with marketing for the upcoming Rob Zombie film "31," set to open in select theaters on September 1. The promotional poster is a scary clown in whiteface makeup that looks similar to images being shared on social media. (WYFF)

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
