Come On Man!
There's really no way to spin the forecast this weekend and beyond. We enter a rather wet pattern today that persists through next week. There will be some spotty light rain this evening, but it's not much to write home about.
On the bright side, rainfall is not heavy this weekend and the bulk of it comes during the nighttime hours. The first significant round is tonight into Saturday morning. Tomorrow afternoon should be mostly dry and noticeably cooler. Rain returns Sunday morning and may start as a dab of freezing rain before temperatures get comfortably above freezing. Light rain continues at times Sunday and picks up the pace Sunday night. President's Day has mostly morning rain and a less wet afternoon, similar to Saturday.

The big picture set-up goes like this: A cold front moves through overnight and settles across the Southeast until this time next week. Various waves of low pressure ride along the front bringing repetitive rounds of rainfall. Temperature-wise there are some cool days in the mix, notably this weekend and Tuesday, but there's no true cold air in sight.
Spotty light rain is around this evening, and becomes steadier tonight. Rain lingers into Saturday morning and if we play our cards just right the afternoon is dry.
Light rain returns Sunday morning and occasional light rain continues during the day. It will be marginally cold enough to support freezing rain for a couple hours Sunday morning. Rain is steadier Sunday night.
President's Day has morning rain and a mostly dry afternoon. It will also be a tad milder.
A chilly wedge of high pressure settles in Tuesday supporting another brief window for a wintry mix Tuesday morning. Temperatures climb above freezing thereafter so any wintry threats are short-lived and limited to the morning hours. Rain continues Tuesday and Tuesday night.
Wednesday and Thursday are wet, but the wedge erodes giving way to milder air.
