increasing after midnight. here's what to expect, 63 tomorrow, 68 on sunday. better chances for the upstate for sunday night and into monday. those temperatures start to come down. down right chilly by tuesday. 50 for a high. good rain chances into wednesday before that whole s sstem pushes out and our pattern changes again. bright sunshine by by thursday. hang on to the umbrellas and the jackets. for the mountains highs in the lower 60s, chillier weather into next week as rain chances increase actually high of only 47 on thursday and a whole system wraps up with a few high mounain snow showers on wednesday afternoon into wednesday night. clearer by this time next week with highs near 50. >> thank you, christy. have a wlook at this -- look at this, the kids at boiling strings are studying leadership.
