A First Alert has been issued right through Friday, with daily chances for showers and occasional heavier thunderstorms. It’s not going to rain all day, every day, but there will be rain around every day this week. With a few breaks of sunshine, temperatures this afternoon should make a run to near 80° in most Piedmont neighborhoods. 

Make sure you have your umbrella or rain jacket before you head out the door, yet rain looks to be more “off-and-on” during the day.

Morning low temperatures this week will be in the mild mid-60s, with afternoon readings in the mid to upper 70s.

There is some uncertainty about how the weekend will unfold, but right now temperatures look to be in the mid to upper 70s with much lower rain chances forecast.
