As clouds move out, 80s move in, Franson says

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -- As the overcast skies break away Tuesday night, sun and heat will roll into the Carolinas Wednesday morning.

WBTV Meteorologist Kelly Franson says a mix of clouds and sun Tuesday will keep temperatures in the low to mid 70s. 

An isolated thunderstorm is possible, Franson says.

For Wednesday, longer periods of sunshine will push to high temperature close to 80 degrees, two degrees shy of the record set in 1973.

But with the nice weather comes pollen this time of year. 

Pollen.com says spruce, elm and poplar pollen counts will be extremely high for the next couple of days in the Charlotte region.

Allergy sufferers should prepare and stay indoors when possible.

Franson said Thursday will also sees temperatures creeping into the 80s. The heat will also create the potential for an afternoon thunderstorm, Franson said.

For Friday temperatures will cool off but not much, with highs expected to be in the upper 70s.
