GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - It’s somewhat cooler but with more storms around as we head into the weekend.

Saturday morning starts off dry, however any areas that saw heavy rain Friday are looking at fog for Saturday morning. We’ll be waking up to lows in the mid 60s in the mountains to the low 70s in the Upstate.

Saturday and Sunday, the forecast looks very similar to Friday. The focus for shower and storm development is in the afternoons. But the concern for flooding remains with slow moving storms sitting over the area for extended periods of time. While we’re not expecting severe storms, lightning and prolonged periods of rain means you should have an indoor back-up plan. Highs are in the 80s regionwide for the weekend, high 80s for the Upstate and low 80s for the mountains.

Early next week, the rain chances drop a little for Monday and Tuesday before picking back up midweek as a cold front sags into the area.

The tropics remain quiet, with no activity expected for the next 48 hours.
