GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Scattered showers followed by near-record warmth is forecast for the western Carolinas.

FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent said a warm front moving toward the area from the Gulf of Mexico will bring light rain by Thursday night, which will likely end by Friday morning. She said temperatures will remain in the 50s while the rain moves through.

On Friday, sunshine will return by Friday afternoon with high temperatures reaching near 60 degrees, Kent said.

Scattered clouds and a southwest wind will push temperatures to more than 70 degrees by the weekend, Kent said. She said on Saturday the forecast high for Greenville is 72 degrees, breaking the record high at the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport set in 2000 by two degrees.

Kent said temperatures will remain warm until a cold front moves in to the region by early next week, bringing not only cooler air but also chances for rain.
