FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Staying dry this weekend, warming up too!
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – We’ve dropped our small chance of rain for Friday and we’re looking at a mid weekend too.
First Alert Headlines
· Skies clear tonight with lows in the mid 50s.
· Mid 70s Friday and Saturday with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.
· Sunny skies Sunday with upper 60s, just a little cooler.
· Rain chances are set to return next week, especially for Tuesday.
First Alert Summary
Low temperatures tonight are in the mid 50s with mostly cloudy skies turning partly cloudy by the early morning.
Low pressure is down to our southeast and will remain too far away to bring any moisture to the Midlands Friday, so we’ve dropped the chance of rain for Friday and temperatures increase to the mid 70s by the afternoon.
There’s a cold front to our north Saturday. Because it hasn’t passed through yet our temps are again in the mid 70s. Expect mostly sunny skies with morning lows in the mid 50s.
Sunday morning we have the front passing through, and that cools us down a bit into the low 40s. Afternoon highs are a bit cooler too with upper 60s possible. Skies are sunny.
Monday is pleasant with lows in the mid 40s and highs reaching the upper 60s. There’s a 20% chance of showers by the late evening. That chance goes up into 50% overnight into Tuesday. A large low pressure system will move north over the Ohio River Valley and will drag a cold front into the region for Tuesday.
This brings a decent chance of rain for the region. Chances have gone up to 60% for Tuesday with temps in the upper 60s to low 70s.
