GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Showers and thunderstorms will diminish for Thursday night, but a few areas of light rain will be possible.

FOX Carolina meteorologist Kendra Kent said heavy rain and lightning will be the primary threats, but a few storms could produce damaging winds and hail on Friday.

Kent said localized flooding will be possible with any thunderstorms that develop.

The cold front that is causing the storms will slowly pass through from north to south, and that could cause some flooding concerns as the individual storms likely won't blow through as quickly as usual.

FOX Carolina viewers reported multiple downed trees and flooding throughout the Upstate on Thursday.

Friday will be fairly stormy, with the rain chance at about 60 percent as the cold front lingers just to the south. Kent said the best chance of a storm will be at about 2 p.m. for the Upstate.

The cold front will still be close by, and that will help to keep showers and storms going through late week.

Partly cloudy skies are expected for Saturday with a 30 percent chance of a lingering shower and sunny skies return on Sunday. Highs will drop into the 70s and low 80s area-wide.
