WEATHER: Cooler temps with stray showers possible today, weekend warm-up ahead

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - An upper-level low and cold pool spinning over the Carolinas is leading to scattered showers again this morning, mainly to the east of Charlotte.

And you've undoubtedly noticed the cool-down too, as this will be the coldest start we've had in about 2 weeks with daybreak readings in the upper 40s.

By later today, we'll be a tad warmer with highs rebounding to near 70° and just a stray leftover shower possible as the upper-level low slowly pulls away to the northeast.

Tonight will be chilly again, with overnight lows down into the 40s for most neighborhoods.

The big improvement really comes this weekend, with highs in the upper 70s Saturday, warming to the low to mid 80s on Mother's Day with very low rain chances both days.

Beyond, it looks like next week extends the stretch in the 80s, with no better than a 20-30% shower chance through midweek.
