Rain showers and a meteor shower will be part of our Saturday night for the upcoming weekend! Sadly, with the clouds cover and rain, we'll see very little of the Lyrids meteor shower. It's a bummer because there's a new moon is set for Saturday night, which would help us to see the Lyrids! Tonight you may be able to catch a couple of meteors late night, but the shower won't peak until Saturday night.
As for the peak of our rain activity...that should come late Saturday into early Sunday. A cold front will meet up with an upper low to our south. The cold front will bring scattered showers and t-storms to the mountains midday-afternoon on Saturday, then to the Upstate late afternoon-evening. Then we'll be watching the movement of the upper low to our south. It will bring soaking and torrential rain at times to the Carolina and GA coasts, while we should just get some additional showers from it in our eastern sections (if you live fairly close to I77 you'll likely get some brief heavy rain Sunday AM). The system will be slow to clear our area, so we'll be left with isolated showers, clouds and windy conditions Sunday afternoon. Therefore, the weekend isn't looking great weather-wise, but at least it won't be a total washout.
Next week, we'll keep windy conditions around on Monday, then temps will fall into the 30's and 40's both Monday and Tuesday nights. The cold air won't have a lot of staying power, but it will keep a grip on us through early in the week.
