WEATHER: High pressure system keeps us cool until next week

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

If you have planted a garden recently, it looks like you'll need to break out the water hose for a few days. Our rain chances are slim to none for the whole extended forecast, and we're running 3.5" below average for the year.

The dry pattern is thanks to a big high pressure system parked to our north. This will not only be keeping us dry, but cooler than average as well. Highs will hold in the mid-upper 60s with overnight lows in the 40s once again today, through Saturday.

After that, the heat turns on as the high pressure system changes position and brings a shift in our wind. We'll still be mainly dry, but highs on Sunday will rebound to the mid 70s, and we could be into the low 80s by early next week!

Have a Happy Thursday!
