Sunshine dominates the day, with highs warming into the upper 50s for the Upstate and low 50s in the mountains. High elevations will likely see a strong breeze, gusting up to 25 mph.
Saturday will bring increasing clouds with highs staying in the 50s. The day and evening should be dry, but late Saturday night we could see some very light rain push in. Some of the rain could mix with light snow in western North Carolina briefly, but no accumulation is expected.
There will be a good chance for rain on Sunday, and it will be a chilly rain at that. There could be some lingering rain/snow showers in the mountains through late morning, then it would be all rain. Highs will only warm into the upper 40s.
The rain chance remains highs through middle of next week, which is great news for our local drought.
