FIRST ALERT DISCUSSION
The showers have wrapped up across the Midlands outside with a few sprinkles but it is on the cool and damp side with temperatures hovering in the 50s.
The good news is the rain should be completely gone by this evening so it will be dry for high school football as we enter the final weeks of the playoffs.
Behind the cold front, high pressure will build over the Carolinas keeping us dry for Saturday leading to a fantastic forecast for the Palmetto Bowl if you are headed to Clemson for the noon kickoff. Temperatures should warm into the mid-60s under mostly sunny skies Saturday afternoon.
Another cold front slides into the Midlands Sunday morning leading to more showers with an additional 0.5-1″ of rain possible. We could even have a few rumbles of thunder and lightning with these showers Sunday morning. The rain will clear by the afternoon and skies will turn sunny pushing highs into the lower 70s Sunday afternoon.
High pressure builds back in over the region Monday and that keeps the sunshine to start the new work week. Lows are near 50 in the morning and we have the mid-60s by the afternoon.
