CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Not much change in our forecast as we move into Friday but maybe a little less shower activity for the weekend. A tropical low to our east and the remnants of Nicholas to our west are combining to increase the clouds and the rain chances for Friday. Hit or miss rain will be the story through Friday but the weekend will carry a little less chance. Even with a pop-up shower, there should be plenty of dry time this weekend with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

TROPICS: We’re watching two tropical waves in the Atlantic Basin that both have a high chance of developing into a tropical depression or more. A disturbance ESE of Charleston remains disorganized as it moves northward into the cooler Atlantic waters. A tropical depression may develop as this passes offshore of the Outer Banks of North Carolina over the next couple days. This storm will then turn northeast, away from the United States. Another disturbance continues move westward, away from Africa, over the open Atlantic. A tropical depression or storm may develop over the next couple days as it moves westward toward the Lesser Antilles. It’s too early to tell if this will ever impact any land areas. We’ll keep you updated!

Friday: More clouds than sunshine, a few showers, HIGH: 86.

Saturday: A few showers possible, HIGH: 87.

Sunday: Slight chance of showers, HIGH: 87.

Monday: Scattered showers possible, HIGH: 86.

Tuesday: Off and on rain possible, HIGH: 85.
