Expect very muggy weather to stick around through the weekend.  As it has been for a few days, there will be more sunshine to the east and clouds to the west.

There is a 30 percent chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms in the Piedmont and a 60 percent chance in the mountains.  These rain chances remain steady over the weekend.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for Surry, Wilkes, Alleghany and Watauga counties until 8 pm tonight.

Highs will be around 86 degrees today and Saturday, and near 88 degrees on Sunday.
