Friday will start off with plenty of sunshine, but will be followed by increasing clouds through the day as a cold front moves through the Carolinas. Skies will become cloudy by the early afternoon. As the front moves into the region, showers will move in during the afternoon and last through the evening. No heavy rain is expected and the showers will not last long. Despite increasing clouds and showers, Friday will be a warm day with afternoon temperatures near 60.

Our next rain chance arrives tomorrow afternoon ahead of the cold front.
