Isolated rain showers possible Friday and into the weekend

That kind of day will not be repeated Friday or this weekend as clouds, rain and humidity are all set to return. Much of the midday into afternoon could end up dry, with a second risk of rain picking up by afternoon into evening, when a few storms may fire as a front approaches. Highs in the lower 70s.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy - low around 64. High: 96. Wind: S 10-15 miles per hour.

Sunday, the upper level trough responsible for these daily rain chances finally manages to work its way off to the east. The high will be 87. Southeast winds 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Friday rain chances are again high with the best rain chances during the afternoon.

Friday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 57. The overnight low will be 71. South wind 6 to 8 miles per hour.

These showers will be quite heavy, but a lot of them will die away by evening time, with a chance of rain later tonight. Low: 73. High: 96. Chance of precipitation is 50%. Data Thursday morning pointed towards Sat morning as the most likely time to see showers.

If you're planning on heading to the beach this weekend, some patchy fog is possible in the mornings.

Mid to late morning Saturday, another drier stretch, with showers and storms bubbling up afternoon and evening. Those spots that get little to no rain get hotter than others: highs 85-89ºF with a southwest breeze up to 15 miles per hour. Tuesday is a bit milder under partly sunny skies. Low: 78. High: 100.

We're tracking one disturbance after another across the Southeast and this is resulting in more rain and occasional thunderstorms.
