WEATHER: Temps decrease, rain chances increase

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A very weak front which passed through Sunday - mostly unnoticed - is dangling just to our south and east across the coastal plain and Midlands. The front only managed to produce a couple of showers Sunday afternoon across our viewing area and there's only about a 40% chance for a thunderstorm later today, mainly S/E of I-85.

The more significant byproduct of this frontal passage will be the wind shift behind it, which should introduce a slightly cooler air mass from the north and keep us below 90° this week, if not the rest of the year.

Highs Monday with variable cloudiness should top out in the mid 80s, close to average for this time of the year.

The remainder of the week looks a bit unsettled with the old front hanging around the first half followed by another weak front arriving Thursday and stalling again. Thus, we'll leave scattered showers in the forecast for much of the upcoming week with perhaps more organized rain forming here next weekend.
