The forecast for the Labor Day weekend couldn't get much better than this - unless, of course, you'd prefer clouds and rain.

The National Weather Service station for the Charleston area anticipates sunny skies, a high of 90 degrees and no rain for most every day in the coming week.

It's all because of an area of high pressure that has settled in over the Eastern Seaboard.

The forecasters were keeping an eye on a possible trough of low pressure developing by midweek, though.

Still, they expect partly or mostly sunny skies daily through Thursday.

Here are the details:

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 91. Calm wind.

Friday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 74. Calm wind.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 90. Calm wind becoming southeast 5 to 9 mph in the morning.

Saturday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 74. Southeast wind 3 to 8 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 90. Calm wind becoming south 5 to 8 mph in the afternoon.

Sunday night: Mostly clear, with a low around 76.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 90.

Monday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 76.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 91.

Tuesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 77.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 91.

Wednesday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 76.

Thursday: Partly sunny, with a high near 91.
