WEATHER: 70s, round 2 of needed rain moves in

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Clouds prevail this morning and there are a couple of spotty showers around, but this is just a preview of a larger area of rain and embedded thunderstorms that will arrive later today. Overall, additional rainfall is likely to remain under an inch today with the exception of the northern foothills and mountains where 1" - 3" of rain is more likely.

The time of arrival for the line of showers will be around midday for the mountains, mid-afternoon in the foothills and closer to dinner time around the Piedmont of North and South Carolina. We'll warm into the 70s today in the Charlotte area before any rain arrives at day's end. 

By Thursday, we will be drying out and watching cooler air return. Highs will be in the mild 60s Thursday before chillier air - highs in the seasonal 50s - arrives for Friday and the weekend. We will stay dry through Saturday before the next rain chance comes in on Sunday. As of now, that chance stands at 50%. We'll keep an eye on it for you.

    Asheville residents often see bears. The mountains’ largest city is the focus of a five-year study of urban bears that pass through or live in and around the town. Residents have reason to be wary around animals that can reach 500 pounds, sport inch-long claws and sprint at 35 mph, but they’re also mostly tolerant of them. Because no hunting is allowed, the city serves as a bear sanctuary.
