Drastic Drop in Temperatures & Rain Chances

Scattered showers return to the forecast on Monday, but sunshine dominates the weekend ahead.

Friday has come again, but this time, no wintry weather is in the forecast. Instead, it feels like spring for many of us across the Foothills and Piedmont. Temperatures are in the 60s this Friday afternoon, but a polar plunge lurks behind the cold front making its way through the Carolinas. Expect scattered showers to slowly taper off eastward before clear skies and much colder temperatures arrive by Saturday morning. Lows will bottom out in the 20s and 30s across the Piedmont and Foothills, while the High Country could dip into the teens.

The weekend ahead looks mainly sunny and cold. Highs will struggle to get out of the 40s around the Metro, while lows will find themselves in the 20s. More rain arrives on Monday, and depending on the timing, we could see a bit of a wintry mix early in the day. Accumulations look minor for now, but it’s something to watch. Highs will gradually rise throughout next week.

Tonight: Clouds and showers clear out late. Much colder. Low: 31°. Wind: NW 5-15.

Saturday Night: Clear and cold. Low: 26°. Wind: NE 5-10.
