FIRST ALERT: Showers and thunderstorms expected Sunday

(WBTV) (WBTV)
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Today (Friday) will be mostly sunny with highs returning to the seasonal 60s thanks to more of a south wind.

Partly cloudy, dry and cool tonight.  If you are making plans, it will be dry and mild with evening readings in the 50s and overnight lows in the 40s to near 50° for most neighborhoods.

The warm-up continues into the weekend, back up to the 70s by Saturday.  At this point, Saturday looks dry with increasing clouds.

A First Alert Day has been declared for Sunday, as showers and thunderstorms are likely to disrupt any outdoor plans you may have.  Consider shifting them to Saturday if possible as there will likely be rain around from daybreak on through the morning, then it looks like this line of thunderstorms will move through during the late afternoon hours.  Severe weather potential looks limited at this point, but we are monitoring, as we’ll be back in the warm 70s again Sunday.

After Sunday's showers and storms, if you're looking further down the road, warm 70s are likely to prevail for much of next week even flirting with 80° at times. We still can't rule out more showers both Monday and Tuesday.

    A state regulator on Friday rejected Duke Energy’s request to raise customers rates in Charlotte, ordering it instead to cut those rates. The North Carolina Utilities Commission's order amounts to a rare denial for the Charlotte-based utility, which had sought its first rate hike since 2013 for central and western North Carolina.
