COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) -- A wet first half of the weekend could leave behind a lot of rain for parts of the Midlands.
An area of low pressure will move from the Gulf of Mexico over northern Florida on Friday. Rain associated with the low pressure system will spread from south to north over the Midlands between mid and late day on Friday.
The rain will continue overnight into Saturday as the system moves off the Florida/Georgia/South Carolina coast.
It will also be breezy with winds out of the northeast at 15-20 mph with higher gusts.
The rain chances will go down early Sunday morning as the area of low pressure moves east.
After it is all said and done, some locations across the Palmetto State could see 2-3 inches of rain. This will lead to some flooding in the typical spots.
Temperatures will also be way below average. We are forecasting high temperatures to not make it out of the low/mid 60s for Friday and Saturday. The lower 70s will return for Easter Sunday with a partly cloudy sky by the afternoon.
Columbia Metro Airport is currently -0.46" for the month and -1.13" for the year. We will most likely be in the postive after this weekend.
