Rain chances increase later today

Expect mostly cloudy skies today, with warmer temperatures reaching the low-to-mid-60s.  The breeziness sticks around, with a slight chance for a passing shower.  Overnight, a few rain showers move through with milder lows in the 40s and 50s.  On Thursday, a cold front will approach and pass through, bringing scattered rain to the morning commute.  As the day wears on, we'll slowly see drier weather set in, and I believe rain will be gone by mid-afternoon.  Highs Thursday reach the upper 60s Upstate, with low 60s in Western NC.  Clearer skies Thursday night lead to chilly temperatures once again, dropping into the 30s area-wide, and winds will shift from the north so expect that to help keep a chill in the air through Friday.  Full sunshine returns to end the week with cooler temperatures in the middle 50s to low 60s.  Over the weekend sunny weather continues, but we'll slowly warm back up into the mid-to-upper 60s by Sunday.
