CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - As the weekend storm system pulls off the mid-Atlantic coast and high pressure to our west slowly builds in, we’ll be stuck in the clouds Monday with chilly afternoon temperatures only rebounding to mid 40s. There could be a sprinkle or two around, but much of the time right through the night will just be cloudy, damp and cold. Overnight lows will fall back to the lower 30s in most neighborhoods.
The mid-week brings the return of the seasonable 50s with mostly sunny and pleasant conditions.
By Thursday, clouds will be on the increase again as another frontal system heads our way. That system will bring our next round of rain Thursday night before we clear back out – at least temporarily – on Friday. Friday looks good with partly to mostly sunny skies and afternoon temperatures in the mild 60s!
Unfortunately, the nice weather Friday won’t linger into the holiday weekend. A more important storm system is forecast by several long-range models, and so I’m adding yet again, more rain to the forecast Saturday into at least the first part of Sunday. If these models verify, it appears as if some of the rain could be on the heavy side. With any luck, we’ll at least clear out in time for the MLK Day holiday on Monday.
Hope you have a great week!
