Weekend to have a pleasant start but a wet ending


Friday is still holding on to the threat of rain and thunderstorms into the late afternoon and early evening. As the front pushes pas our region however we will see high pressure arrive briefly for Saturday before moisture impacts the Carolinas once again Sunday into Monday.

A cold front will push across the Carolinas this evening, giving us the chance for rain and thunderstorms until late. Overnight lows will drop into the mid-40s and lower 50s while skies begin to clear.

Saturday will host mostly sunny skies with high pressure in the area and temperatures climbing into the mid-60s across the mountains and lower 70s in the upstate and Northeast Georgia. Winds will be light in the upstate but Western North Carolina will see breezier conditions with winds out of the northwest between 15 and 20mph while gusting to 30mph.

Saturday night into Sunday will see an increase of cloud cover as a Low pressure system develops over Louisiana. That low will track just north of the Carolinas.

Expect to see rain begin in the day on Sunday and really pick up for Monday morning. Rain can be heavy at times. Rain will linger around in the Mountains for a bit but then skies will clear up for the remainder of the work week for the entire region.

Be sure to stay with me through the weekend for updates on Monday's rain chances!
