Sunshine.

That pretty much sums up the Charleston area's weather forecast for the next week.

The National Weather Service predicted Thursday that a tranquil weather pattern with warm air but mostly clear skies will persist through at least midweek.

The only possibility of rain will come Saturday, when the chance is pegged at 20 percent, according to the Weather Service station in North Charleston.

With Hurricane Cristobal well offshore and moving northeastward, a moderate risk of rip currents had subsided by Thursday morning, the Weather Service said.
