CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - After Tuesday’s rain, skies cleared overnight and as temps fell below freezing overnight, patches of dense / freezing fog have developed.
The greatest risk for running into slick spots of bridges and overpasses appears to be from south Meck through neighborhoods along the NC/SC border.
Once the fog lifts later this morning, we’ll enjoy partly sunny skies with afternoon readings back in the middle 50s.
A weak disturbance sliding by to the south of the WBTV viewing area tonight will throw some clouds back our way tonight and perhaps even a few spotty showers south/east of I-85, though rain chances will be low and if it falls, it should be mainly light. Lows tonight will fall back into the 30s, but above freezing for the metro Charlotte area.
Thursday looks nice with mostly sunny skies and above-average high temperatures in the upper 50s – if not 60°.
A few showers are possible on Friday, as a weak cold front moves through the region. The rain could end as a little snow Friday night in the mountains. High temperatures will remain in the 50s around Charlotte on Friday before we clear out and cool off for the upcoming holiday weekend. Saturday will bring clearing skies, a noticeable breeze and chilly afternoon readings in the mid to upper 40s with highs perhaps a little closer to 50° forecast for Sunday.
We’ll likely stay dry and hold mainly in the 40s on MLK Day under partly cloudy skies.
Hope you have a great hump day!
