WBTV Monday noon weather forecast

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Spotty rain showers will continue for the rest of our Monday and into Monday night, with temperatures staying steady or slowly rising overnight into the upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

A First Alert has been issued specifically from late Tuesday into early Wednesday as a cold front will move through the Carolinas. Rain is expected to increase in coverage for Tuesday afternoon and evening, and continue overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

As colder air arrives Tuesday night, some rain is expected to transition to a rain-snow mix to snow for the NC mountains.

Tuesday is expected to be a mild day, with upper 60s likely ahead of the cold front, yet temperatures will quickly drop into the 40s for Wednesday. Precipitation may linger for Wednesday morning, yet is expected to diminish by the afternoon, with clearing skies.

Colder temperatures stay around for Thursday, with partly cloudy skies and a slight chance for a stray shower, as afternoon high temperatures only reach the upper 40s for the Piedmont, and around 40 degrees for the mountains.

A First Alert has also been issued for Friday, as another round of rain showers is expected to develop. A rain-snow mix is possible Friday morning, with a transition to a chilly rain Friday afternoon, as high temperatures only reach the low to mid 40s.

Rain showers are expected to diminish Friday night, with drier weather returning for the weekend. A few isolated rain showers are still possible for the weekend, with afternoon high temperatures in the upper 50s.

Have a great week!
