Pleasant Late June
The weather map looks rather benign through the weekend. Broad high pressure takes the at-large seat and holds course until Sunday. Coverage of showers and storms gradually increases each day, but stays below the speed limit. Today is dry with filtered sunshine through high clouds. Thursday has a "cannot rule out" afternoon thundershower followed by isolated PM thunder Friday. Don't sweat the small stuff.

There's no reason to belabor a fairly simple forecast. High pressure dominates the Southeast through Sunday with a gradual uptick in moisture. What's missing is a good trigger for an organized rain event so we're left with daytime heating and terrain effects to get the job done. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the weekend afternoons turns out a little more stormy than what's advertised, but there's no evidence today to justify that move. So at this juncture we're not depicting any "game changing" weather for outdoor plans anytime soon.
A backdoor front moves through Monday morning with little fanfare or effect. In fact, more heat is added to the equation early next week. Of course by then it will be July and it will feel like it.
