CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Following the weekend showers, we’ll be treated to a good deal of sunshine today along with seasonal afternoon readings in the middle 60s.

Tuesday will start from near 40°, but we’ll enjoy a warmer afternoon near 70° under mostly sunny skies. A stray shower is possible in western section late in the day or at night, though the bulk of the rain should hold off until Wednesday.

Wednesday is a First Alert Day, as widespread rain moves in and a few thunderstorms develop in advance of a strong cold front. Some weather models hint at the chance for a little snow in the higher elevations of the mountains by Wednesday night into Thursday morning, as colder air moves into the region, though any accumulation would be on the light side. In advance of Wednesday’s front, we’ll make another run up into the lower 70s.
