CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - After a frigid start, temperatures are slowly climbing into the upper 40s and lower 40s under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.
With calm winds and clear skies in place overnight, we’ll experience another big drop in temperatures. In fact, we’ll start off with temperatures in the teens and lower 20s across the WBTV viewing area Saturday morning.
The sunshine will return Saturday and so will warmer temperatures. Expect highs in the mid to upper 50s Saturday and lower 60s Sunday. We’ll start the week with an increase in cloud cover Sunday afternoon into Monday morning ahead our next wave of rain.
A First Alert has been declared for Monday as rain showers will be in place along with slightly cooler air through the majority of the day.
A significant chance for rain extends into Tuesday and Wednesday as well. We’ll add around another inch of rainfall to the rain gauge in most locations across the area by the time this system exits midweek.
Enjoy your weekend!
