Dry, cooler weather expected to kick off the weekend

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - While it has been a dry start to the weekend, it was a fair bit chillier today following yesterday’s front. We never made it out of the upper 50s and we’ll probably do about the same tomorrow, after falling into the upper 30s tonight for lows.

Otherwise, the rest of St. Patrick's Day brings sun and clouds with highs a few degrees below average.

The countdown is on to the first day of Spring (Wednesday) and as of now it looks dry but a little cool leading up to the mid-week. Monday-Wednesday will feature highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s, while the average high continues to climb to near 65°. We may finally get close to that number again by late week and into next weekend.

No major signs of any large-scale storm systems to produce organized rain over the next week, so the 7-day forecast is mainly dry.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
