Easter weather warm, sunshine and cooler next few days

Overview: A few spotty rain showers will be possible for Saturday, with a better chance for scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developing on Easter Sunday, as a cold front approaches from the west late in the day.

INTO NEXT WEEK: Overall the upper ridge holds, but will shift to the east some and that will allow for the chance of a few scattered showers during the afternoon hours.

If you have outdoor plans on this Easter Sunday you should be fine through the middle of the afternoon. There will be plenty of sunshine in the morning with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon. Temperatures will warm fast with highs reaching the low 80s in the afternoon! As a cold front crosses the region, it brings a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly between 5 and 11 p.m.

Friday: Showers and thunderstorms likely.

TUESDAY: A few additional showers or storms are possible but rain chance is just 30%.

Monday - Mostly sunny, with a high near 64. It will turn rather breezy this afternoon with winds gusting up to 30-35 miles per hour. As that line progresses, the threat of damaging winds and large hail becomes slightly higher for our eastern areas along with pockets of heavy rainfall.

High pressure over the northeastern part of the country will dominate the weather across SC this weekend.

Low areas including Dundee will be mostly dry with sunny spells, whereas hilly Perthshire will see a flurry of snow.

Temperatures are set to drop as low as 2 degrees overnight with grass frost expected in some rural areas.

A mixture of sun and clouds will allow temperatures to rise into the low 80s.

Monday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 57.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 80.
