The increasing humidity combined with a weak cold front across the Carolinas will result in a few scattered showers and storms as we head into the weekend forecast. At this time, the timing of the cold front is still uncertain but we do know the shower and storm chances will increase as we head into the weekend. A washout isn’t likely with most of the showers and storms developing during the late afternoon and early evening.

The combination of increasing humidity and a cold front will bring back shower and storm chances for the end of the week.
