GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Pleasant weather continues today, just with more clouds and possibly a shower.

Expect a blend of clouds and sunshine today at the offshore low we’ve been monitoring finally begins to track inland over North Carolina. A stray shower will be possible this afternoon, but the vast majority of us will remain dry all day. Highs will reach the middle to upper 70s, with NE winds increasing to around 10-20 mph.

Skies will trend toward overcast tonight as the low draws closer. Along with the clouds could come more isolated showers, and the added moisture may lead to some patchy fog late. Lows will settle in the mid 50s to around 60 as breezy conditions continue.

Friday still looks like our cloudiest, rainiest day of the week, but it will not be a steady all-day rain. Instead, expect intermittent showers throughout the day, some containing some slightly heavier downpours. A stray rumble of thunder is possible, but widespread thunderstorms are not expected. Temperatures will be held a bit cooler, reaching the low 70s.

Pop-up thunderstorms will be possible over the weekend as low pressure begins to drift away to our north. This will begin to pull some warmer air into the region, pulling highs back to the mid 70s to low 80s on Saturday, and low to mid 80s on Sunday. Despite the chance for storms on Sunday, skies should be clear enough to view the lunar eclipse that night. The event gets underway just before 10:30 PM, and peaks just after midnight.

Dry weather resumes Monday through Wednesday, and temperatures will really be heating up! Upstate areas in particular, have a couple days of 90s in the works!
