First Alert Day issued for Friday as disruptive rain expected

First Alert Weather Forecast: Thursday 11pm

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Friday has been declared a First Alert Day with yet another rainy day to close out the week in the forecast.

Rain moves in overnight setting up a slow and sloppy morning commute on Friday.

The heaviest of the rain will be in the first half of the day but this time we will not see rapid clearing during the afternoon as low clouds and patchy light rain will linger into the evening.

Saturday will be much drier with partly to mostly sunny skies at times by afternoon. Things don’t change too much for Sunday, but a better chance of rain starts to appear again Sunday night and into Monday morning.

Highs stay in the low and mid 60s Friday with the cloudy, wet day, but rebound back into the upper 70s over the weekend.
