WEATHER: Temps reach lower 90s, rain chances increase over weekend

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Shower and thunderstorm chances are much lower (20%) for Friday.  We'll see mainly sunny skies by the afternoon and highs will climb into the lower 90's.

Highs will be in the low 90s Saturday as a front approaches the region, and upper 80s Sunday and Monday as the front creeps east across the area. As of now, there is a 40% chance for a thunderstorm Saturday, but most of the daytime hours look dry with most of the activity holding off until Saturday evening.

We'll see the chances for scattered thunderstorms (60%) going up Sunday and on the 4th of July Monday.  No washout expected, but you'll likely have to dodge a thunderstorm or two this holiday weekend as you make outdoors plans to celebrate with friends and family.

Enjoy your Friday!
