Into the weekend: Mid to upper 80s, rain chances increase Sunday

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - After last evening's showers, skies have cleared and we'll start today with sunny skies and temps in the upper 60s.

Later today, sunshine will dominate and highs will stay in the mid 80s but the rain coverage drops back to about 20 percent for most communities, with the best chance sliding west back to the mountains.

Saturday and Sunday look hot, as highs jump back up into the mid to upper 80s! Saturday should be dry, with an increased chance for scattered storms developing late Sunday and Sunday night.

If the models are correct, excellent rain chances once again return after the weekend. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week all feature shower and storm chances as a front approaches and then slows as it crosses the region. By this time, high temps return to near 80 and stay there through most of next week.
