Spotty overnight showers move into the morning with afternoon thundershowers likely to develop

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Today will look and feel a lot like yesterday, with a mixture of clouds and sunshine in the forecast and afternoon readings in the lower 80s.

And much like yesterday, a few thundershowers are going to develop this afternoon over the mountains and some of these will probably drift out into the foothills and Piedmont late in the day. That pattern is likely to repeat itself Thursday and Friday as well.

In the meantime, any evening thundershowers around Charlotte will slowly die down and give way to overnight lows in the muggy 60s with a few fog patches possible.

The humidity level will continue to inch up day by day and by the end of the work week, unsettled weather is likely to return as a slow-moving cool front approaches the region by Friday, leading to a greater risk of more widespread downpours heading into the weekend.

Model data suggests that front may stall over the holiday weekend and so our rain chance will remain elevated – 50% to 60% - Saturday and Sunday. So, while a total washout is not in the forecast, better rain chances are, and so a back-up plan to any outdoor activities is probably a good idea – just in case.

By Monday, rain is expected to move out with sunshine and lower humidity moving back in.

Hope you have a great hump day!
