GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Friday will provide a stark contrast to the weather we have seen for most of the week!

Skies are cloudy this morning as we also contend with spotty drizzle and some patchy fog as you get ready to hit the roads. Be prepared for slick conditions, changes in visibility, and make sure to bring your umbrella with you!

Low pressure near the coast will track inland over our region by this afternoon. Clouds from the morning will break up enough to allow some sun through from time to time, helping to fuel more substantial showers and possibly a few thunderstorms into this evening. If you plan on being outside, make sure to keep an eye on the skies! Highs this afternoon will head for the low and middle 70s.

Showers and possibly a thunderstorm will continue overnight as low pressure briefly stalls over the region. Staying mild as lows dip to the low and mid 60s.

A chance for pop-up thunderstorms will remain for the weekend, but like Friday, neither day will be a full washout. Go ahead and keep your outdoor plans, but make sure to keep tabs on the weather and be ready to head for cover if storms head your way! Highs will warm back up to the mid 70s to around 80 on Saturday, and low to mid 80s on Sunday. Don’t forget about the lunar eclipse on Sunday evening, getting underway around 10:30 pm! Partly cloudy skies should give us good viewing conditions if you’re willing to stay up a little later!

Air conditioners will be getting a real workout next week! Highs will climb well into the middle and upper 80s Monday through Thursday, with parts of the upstate topping 90 by midweek!
