After a short break from the rain, we’ve got more on the way this weekend

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Following morning rain & thunder, we've actually had a pretty pleasant second half of the afternoon with drying, skies even breaking for some limited sun, and temps in the low 60s. A couple showers back to the southwest could re-work themselves into the picture by this evening, but for the most part any true rain holds off until tomorrow.

Friday & Saturday will be another pair of unsettled days with chilly 40s returning as well as more clouds and intermittent periods of rain. We really can't rule out any one time period either day that will be rain-free. It looks like the steadiest rain Friday generally holds along/north of I-40 where a couple more inches of rain are possible. Ashe & Watauga counties remain under a Flood Watch.

First Alert Forecast: Thursday, Feb. 21 @ 4pm

A front comes through Sunday morning bringing a final push of showers before clearing out swiftly for the second half of the day. Behind it, late Sunday afternoon will actually be quite mild with temps rebounding to the low 70s, wow!

We’ve been waiting all week for dry weather, and it still appears that once we get passed the weekend we’re mainly dry for the early-middle part of next week with generally seasonable temperatures.
