CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Except for a few pop-up showers Thursday, the weather will stay pretty quiet through Friday but a return of moisture from the Atlantic will likely increase the rain chance Friday night and Saturday for the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Scattered showers and storms are likely on Saturday but the rain chance looks like it will decrease again Sunday and for Labor Day. We’ll keep you updated on the rain chances as we approach the holiday weekend!

TROPICS: We’re watching three tropical waves in the Atlantic with a medium or high chance of developing over the next 5 days. None of these are concerning to the United States at this time. The disturbance in the central Atlantic, east of the Caribbean, is slowly becoming better organized and may become a tropical depression or tropical storm over the next few days. Regardless, this storm is expected to stay away from all Caribbean Islands and the Bahamas through early next week. It appears most likely that this will make an early turn out to sea, not impacting the United States. Some waves, rip currents may be possible along the Southeast coastline dependent on the eventual strength of this storm.

TONIGHT: Fair, Warm & Muggy with patchy fog, Low 73.

THURSDAY: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Rain/Storms. High 90, Low 73.

FRIDAY: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Rain/Storms. High 88, Low 74.

SATURDAY: Sun & Clouds. Scattered Rain/Storms. High 87, Low 74.

SUNDAY: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Rain/Storms. High 88, Low 73.

LABOR DAY: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Rain/Storms. High 88, Low 73.
