  • “Soak in that sunshine and warmth, friends,” meteorologist John Ahrens said Thursday afternoon. “The weather is about to go downhill in a big way starting tomorrow.”
  • Rain will start developing by mid-morning, which will be fairly light and should start to taper off by late afternoon.
  • This will set us up for a heavier rain event on Saturday, Ahrens said.
  • Steady showers will move in and continue for most of the day.
  • The precipitation should start to lessen a bit as we close in on the ACC Championship game on Saturday night in Charlotte on Saturday.
  • Showers are likely again on Sunday.
  • Of course, that is good news considering our drought situation, Ahrens said.
  • The skies will clear up on Monday.
