The weekend will start on a wet note, but end on a gorgeous one, according to FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent.
Showers tapered to persistent drizzle on Friday for most of the western Carolinas, but the rain will increase by Friday night, Kent said. She said the heaviest rain will fall south of the Interstate 85 corridor.
Kent said the showers will linger into Saturday morning. She said skies will slowly clear by the afternoon. Temperatures will be chilly - in the lower 50s for the Upstate and middle 50s for the mountains.
Sunday will be beautiful, Kent said. She said abundant sunshine will push temperatures into the middle 60s in the Upstate and upper 50s in the mountains.
Kent said people should enjoy Sunday because more rain and chilly temperatures is forecast Monday and Tuesday.
