Sun, warm weather in place for Knights home opener at BB&T Ballpark

Posted: Updated:

WBTV Meteorologist Al Conklin says it's a home run forecast for the Charlotte Knights and the fans with the home opener at BB&T Ballpark uptown at 7:05 p.m. Friday evening. 

Tons of sun today with highs in the upper 70s, mid 70s for the first pitch.

Sticking with the theme of temperatures, we'll stay pleasantly warm through the weekend, with afternoon readings both days near 80 degrees across the Piedmont, closer to 70 degrees in the mountains, Conklin says.

As for rain, we'll see a stray mountain shower can't be ruled out over the weekend.

The next important front arrives Monday night and may kick off some thunderstorms late Monday into early Tuesday, but right now the atmosphere doesn't look terribly unstable.

Too bad, because a total lunar eclipse occurs Monday night with the shadow appearing just before 2 a.m. 

Maybe the timing of the front and clouds will change by then.
