CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - High pressure is building into the Carolinas behind the midweek front that brought much-needed rain, and now we’re setting ourselves up for a terrific stretch of weather.

  • Bright sun and pleasant temperatures
  • Cool 40s and 50s again tonight
  • Little chance of any rain

Saturday will start cool again with lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s before rebounding to the upper 70s under partly sunny skies. A weak front will blow by to our north late Saturday, bringing with it a few more clouds, but there’s no real chance for any rain, so if you’re making outdoor plans, go for it!

Sunday will bring more sunshine with a seasonal afternoon reading near 80°. Low to middle 80s are forecast for the first half of next week with lots of sunshine and continued low rain chances. A weak back-door front may bring a couple of midweek showers to the region, but at this point, rain does not look to be widespread.

In the tropics, the only system we need to concern ourselves with is Hurricane Sam. It is forecast to become a major hurricane over the weekend as if drifts toward the west-northwest. At this point, the forecast keeps Sam away from any land, but we’ll be monitoring for changes in the track forecast, just in case.

Hope you have a great Friday and weekend!
