      Tuesday, April 22 2014 1:18 PM EDT2014-04-22 17:18:27 GMT
      A weak system is moving through this afternoon, but not a whole lot of rain is expected, if any. Wednesday and Thursday will see a fantastic amount of sunshine and temperatures back in the low 80s. An incredibly weak cold front will ease into the southeast Friday and stall out. That means rain chances stay on the lighter side, especially in the afternoon, most of the weekend. A more vigorous cold front will push through the region next Monday evening.
