Another morning waking up to very, very mild temperatures! Temperatures are in the 60s for most across the Upstate, 50s in the mountains.

Where we’ve been tip-toeing around record territory for the past few days, we step fully into it on Thursday. After another cloudy start, sun quickly breaks out by midday, setting the stage for highs to soar into the upper 70s and low 80s. Both GSP Airport and Asheville are expected to set new records, with forecast highs for 80° and 78° respectively. A final spike of warmth before we enter a brief, but sharp cooldown into the weekend.

There’s a chance for an isolated, spotty shower throughout the day too. Although, most of us will be dry majority of the day. Any shower that we get will be light.

An approaching cold front brings a round of showers into the Upstate later in the day Friday, culminating with a period of steadier rain for much of the region into Saturday. Highs Friday cool to the 60s ahead of the front, and crash back toward the low to mid 50s on Saturday. Not frigid, but a sharp change from what we’ve enjoyed all week. Fortunately, we’re in for an equally quick recovery with 60s and 70s coming right back with sunshine on Sunday!
