WEEKEND CHANGES

Saturday will be the day for outdoor plans this weekend. Clouds will move in, but the day will be dry. Temperatures on Saturday will start off near 40 and then climb into the lower and middle 50s as skies turn overcast.

A moisture-laden area of low pressure will push through the Deep South and into the Carolinas on Sunday bringing the potential for a washout. The details are still fuzzy, but periods of heavy rain appear possible during the day Sunday and into Sunday evening. Rainfall totals could be impressive with this system - potentially over 2 inches in some areas. Despite the rain, Sunday afternoon temperatures will climb to near 60.
