Showers Friday give way to a chilly holiday weekend

WBTV Thursday morning weather forecast

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Low clouds and fog this morning will give way to sunshine and above-average high temperatures in the middle 50s.

We’ll stay dry tonight but clear skies this evening will give way to more clouds overnight with lows in the middle 30s.

Friday will bring a cold front to the region with scattered showers, mainly during the morning and midday hours before pushing to the east during the afternoon. High temperatures will remain in the 50s around Charlotte on Friday before we clear out and cool off for the upcoming holiday weekend. 

Colder 30s in the mountains Friday will bring a mix of rain and snow showers there, but only a small, slushy accumulation is likely before colder air arrives Friday night and Saturday.

Saturday will bring plenty of sunshine, a noticeable breeze and chilly afternoon readings in the mid to upper 40s. As noted above, snow showers will be falling in the mountains Friday night and off and on through the day Saturday, adding up to an inch or so around Boone and the population centers, but on the order of three or four inches at the ski resorts. 

More sunshine Sunday with afternoon readings forecast to be a little closer to 50° forecast for Sunday. We’ll likely stay dry and hold near 50° on MLK Day under partly cloudy skies. 

Mid to upper 50s are forecast Tuesday and Wednesday with our next chance for showers coming Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Hope you have a great day!
