Mild days stay around until the weekend.

First Alert Weather

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - High pressure is in control of our weather pattern and it will remain that way until it gives way on Friday to our next weak system moving through the region.

It won’t be all that noticeable as we only expect stray light showers to develop during the late afternoon and evening hours.

By Saturday morning it will already be departing the area to our east.

So while this system will supply very little in terms of disruptive weather, it will open the door for colder air to enter the picture again for the weekend as high temperatures will drop from around the mid-50s into the mid and upper 40s over the weekend.

But bright skies will counter the chilly air and overall I think most folks will give this pattern high marks.

As a footnote, light snow will be falling in the mountains Friday night and off and on through the day Saturday.

That adds up to a good skiing weekend in conjunction with the extended Martin Luther King Holiday.
