SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Rain continues to fall in the Carolinas Friday.  A Flash Flood Watch has been extended into the evening hours as a result. 

Forecasters say we'll continue to see waves of showers and a few heavy thunderstorms moving through during the day.

Highs will stay in the low 80s for the Upstate and upper 70s for the mountains, according to Storm Team 7 Meteorologist Malachi Rodgers.

"With scattered showers in the overnight forecast, lows will fall to the low 70s for the Upstate and upper 60s for the mountains," Rodgers adds.

Over the weekend and into early next week, our weather pattern will gradually transition to a more "normal" summertime situation.

This means temperatures will climb a bit, but we'll keep some showers and thunder around, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours. 

Those storms should gradually become less numerous, meaning more of us will be a bit dryer.

However, it will still be humid, and that moisture means that any storms that do form could still produce some locally heavy rain.
