Mid-upper 60s this weekend, wet and chilly next week

A good deal of sunshine is expected again today, and after a chilly start, we'll enjoy a fairly mild afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 50s.

If you're heading out this Friday night, it will be dry and chilly under partly cloudy skies, lows will bottom out in the 40s around Charlotte, but colder 30s likely dominate outside of town.

This weekend will definitely have you thinking Spring. As the wind pulls out of the south, highs will soar to the mid 60s on Saturday and upper 60s on Sunday.

The weekend warmth will come with more clouds however, and it may not be completely rain free. There's a small chance for a shower Saturday in the mountains and a 30% shower chance almost anywhere in the WBTV viewing area late Sunday.

Next week doesn't look quite so Spring-like. Much higher rain chances return and afternoon readings scale back to near 60° on Monday, then falling further to upper 40s and low 50s for Tuesday/Wednesday, with wet weather to go along with the chill.
