Saturday will bring some sun and more clouds with periods of showers and storms.  Heavy rainfall and localized flooding are possible, as is minor coastal flooding around high tides.  Saturday’s highs will be in the upper 80s.

Sunday will feature plenty of sun and some showers and storms in spots during the mid to late afternoon.  Sunday’s highs will be mostly in the mid-80s.

Columbus Day will see good sun alternating with showers and a few storms.  Monday’s highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.

Tuesday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies for much of the day but with periods of showers and storms.  Highs on Tuesday will be mostly in the upper 80s.

In the tropics, the low about 100 miles off the South Carolina coast has a low chance of becoming a depression before it merges with a front during the weekend.  But this feature will bring gusty winds and heavy rain to portions of the Carolinas for the next couple of days.
