Morning Sun - Afternoon Clouds: After some morning sunshine, clouds will thicken this afternoon and evening. The sunshine will push temperatures into the 60s fairly quickly, then the cloud-cover will put a cap on the warming this afternoon. Along with an easterly wind, we'll have cool afternoon highs in the upper 60s and lows 70s across the area.
Slim % Rain: We won't have much chance for rain until overnight tonight and another slim chance tomorrow. Spotty showers will be possible overnight and tomorrow morning though and I won't be surprised to see some areas get in on some drizzle or light rain.
Friday - Slightly Warmer: As a system develops to our west, light southwesterly winds will help to increase temperatures tomorrow ahead of this weekend system. Highs should range in the low-middle 70s for Upstate/NE Georgia towns with highs around 70 in Western NC.
Saturday & Sunday: Just as Kendra pointed out last night, the track of this weekend's system has trended further south. This obviously means it's likely that the heaviest rain will fall south and east of here. We'll have the best chance for some occasional rain on Saturday without much chance for storms. It will, by no means, be a washout on Saturday as we really aren't expecting much rain to fall. The interesting thing with this weekend setup is that a cool, east-northeast breeze will likely wrap around the center of the system (to our southeast) leading to a bit of a cooler temperature forecast for Saturday and Sunday. This southern storm track with subsequent cooler conditions leads me to believe our thunderstorm chances have gone down which also means a decreased severe weather threat (this weekend).
Cooler Next Week: No change in the thinking of a significant cool down early next week. Low temperatures to begin Monday and Tuesday will be in the 40s for Upstate towns while Western NC settles into the 30s. Jackets will probably be needed and some people may not like the sound of that. We'll have to keep an eye out for the possibility of frost on Tuesday morning of next week in Western NC.
