Thursday will once again see temperatures make a run for the lower 90s in the Upstate and mid-80s across western North Carolina. Winds will mainly come out of the North behind a cold front that will be crossing the Carolinas throughout the day.
Behind that cold front comes cooler temperatures that will see highs peak about ten degrees below normal by Saturday afternoon. Friday will first see the decrease in maximum temperatures with highs only peaking in the mid-80s and upper 70s.
Skies will be mostly cloudy as well, limiting the amount of heating that can occur throughout the day. This cloud cover will likely aid in keeping afternoon highs below normal as well as overnight lows relatively mild.
We will also see the beginning of a wet pattern on Friday, as rain is set to push into the mountains and the Upstate. We will likely see on and off rain throughout the day on Friday with a possible thunderstorm included. Saturday is looking like more of a washout with rain likely throughout the day. We cannot rule out the chance of a Thunderstorm on Saturday as well.
Rain chances will stick around for Sunday and last into the work week. I imagine we will see anywhere from half an inch to an inch and a half of rain across the western Carolinas and Northeast Georgia by the end of the weekend.
After a few sunny and hot days, fall like temps and rainy skies return to plague out weekend.
