Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Enjoy your last dose of Springtime temperatures!  Fall weather is back in a big way as our next cold front moves through.  

As of noon Monday, temperatures were already nearing 70 degrees, but the warm temperatures will be a thing of the past after this afternoon.  A roughly 20 degree drop in our temperatures is forecast once the front moves East.  Overnight lows are once again forecast to drop into the 30s.

One benefit the system will bring to the area is some much-needed rainfall.  Charlotte's yearly rainfall deficit is now over 7 inches and much of the area is now classified as under a Moderate drought.  Some areas could see up to an inch of rain, with a quarter to half an inch expected for the majority of residents in the Carolinas.
