Pleasant weather continues for Friday afternoon, with high temperatures in the lower 80s around Charlotte, to lower 70s in the mountains, with mostly sunny skies.

Labor Day Weekend will feature a warming trend, with afternoon high temperatures warming into the upper 80s for Saturday and Sunday, and around 90 degrees for Labor Day Monday.  A few rain showers are possible Sunday evening, across the mountains, which may linger into early Labor Day Monday. A cold front will move across the Carolinas early Monday, with a few passing rain showers during the day.

We are closely monitoring Hurricane Larry, which is expected to strengthen into a major hurricane this weekend over the Central Atlantic. Weather data continues to suggest that Hurricane Larry will curve away from the United States East Coast, yet some weather data does bring it close to the Northeast United States by next Friday. We will need to keep a close watch for any changes to the forecast track of Larry, as we head into next week.
