Meteorologist Al Conklin's Friday morning forecast

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Sunshine early today will gradually give way to more clouds as the day wears on and afternoon readings will only get back to the upper 60s, a little below average for mid-April.

Cloud cover will thicken tonight but there’s no chance for rain, so you’ll be OK if you’re headed out with evening plans. Overnight lows will fall back to the chilly 40s in most WBTV-area neighborhoods.

Looking ahead, Saturday will bring lots of clouds a perhaps a couple of spotty, light showers, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. The rain may briefly interrupt some outdoor plans, but the chance is no more than 30% at any one time.
