Rain returns overnight into Thursday, but Friday sets stage for sunny weekend

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - After several pretty, but cool days, rain finally made its return to the greater Charlotte area during Wednesday evening and points south and east. This rain is part of a coastal system that will roll to the north overnight and take the rain with it. But that’s not the end of it. A weak cold front is rapidly approaching from the west and it too has potential to produce showers across our entire region during the day on Thursday.

The best chance of rain for the mountains will be in the first half of the day with the piedmont of North and South Carolina seeing their share during the afternoon and evening hours.

All of this moves out on Friday setting the stage for a great weekend as the sunshine will return and push high temperatures up to around 70 degrees by Sunday and into the low 70s on Monday. Don’t look now though, a stout cold front arrives thereafter jamming those high temperatures back down into the 50s again.
