First alert weather alert:
As we go through your Wednesday evening, expect mostly cloudy skies in the Midlands. Isolated showers are possible late. It will be cool too. Low nighttime temperatures will be in the mid-1940s.
Prepare for cooler weather in the Midlands over the next few days. Then the warmer weather arrives next week.
A few showers are in your forecast Thursday. Chances of rain are around 30-40%. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies.
The highs will be even colder, falling into the upper 40s and lower 50s on Thursday. So plan accordingly for the cold.
Friday will be another cool day. The peaks will reach the upper 50. We will see partly sunny skies in the area. A late-day shower is not out of the question.
On Saturday, some of the forecast models hint at an area of low pressure developing near the coast of South Carolina, giving way to more cloud and a risk of wet weather, particularly for the Midlands of the east and towards the coast. Right now the chance of rain is around 20-30%, again mostly in the east. We will closely monitor the forecast for you. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies.
High temperatures will be in the upper 50s on Saturday, then climb to the mid-60s on Sunday. We will see more sun on Sunday.
Also, don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before bedtime on Saturday night at the end of daylight saving time. We’ll save an extra hour of sleep!
High temperatures will return to the 1970s next week.
