Rain moves out, chill remains

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The WBTV viewing area saw a little rain Thursday morning, but it wasn't exactly what we needed.

In Charlotte Thursday morning, .45" fell. Some places in York, South Mecklenburg County and Union were closer to an inch of rain, while the mountains and foothills received little, if any rain.

Even with the decent rain the Piedmont received this morning, we're still in dire need.  Charlotte has not experienced a good soaker rain – one inch or more – in more than two months and our year-to-date deficit is close to 7 inches.

Moving through the day Thursday, a heavy cloud cover remains. Meteorologist Al Conklin says that cloud cover could hold on for most of the day – holding the sun at bay, and keeping the afternoon damp and chilly. Temperatures will struggle to reach the upper 40s.

Thursday night will be dry, but very cold. The cloud cover will give way, but temperatures will dip to the low to mid 30s.

Milder conditions Friday afternoon  - near 60 degrees - should make for a nice end to the work week.
