A chilly and damp start on Friday

Thursday night weather forecast: 11pm

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Another rather chilly night is on tap for us overnight but this time it will be accompanied by periods of light rain into the daybreak hours.

The most likely areas to see wet roads in the morning will be areas near, east and south of Charlotte. That’s not to say we’re ruling out some bursts of light rain in our western sections, but the path of most of this large path are heading more toward the central and eastern sections of the Carolinas.

Low temperatures will not move much over the next week as they will persistently remain in the 30s, but generally stay above freezing.

High temperatures will gradually warm from the 40s over the next two days, to the 50s from Sunday through Tuesday and peaking around 60 by midweek next week.

None of those forecast high temperatures will hit the average high of 63° this time of year. We are easily in the longest streak of cooler-than-average weather we’ve seen all year.

Weekend warriors should be in pretty good shape with outdoor plans as a gradual drying trend will continue through both days.
