The thin upper-level clouds many of us have seen this afternoon are the prelude to thickening cloudiness and increasing shower and thunderstorms chances leading into the weekend. In the meantime, a south and southwest wind is helping to add moisture to the local part of the atmosphere, and high pressure is beginning to weaken around us. These will allow for a decent cold front to enter the Southeast this weekend, producing overcast conditions and developing showers, rain, and some thunderstorms during the warmer parts of Saturday afternoon. An isolated strong storm is possible, with a few higher wind gusts. The activity shifts south on Mother’s Day Sunday and the rain chances start to diminish. Lows tonight will fall into the lower 60s. Highs Saturday rise into the low to mid 80s. Noticeably cooler temperatures are forecast for early next week with sunshine returning.
