The upper level low responsible for the rainfall so far this week remains out to our west, keeping rain chances elevated over the mountains today. Although a few showers are possible throughout the afternoon and evening hours across the Charlotte metro area, the better chance of rain area-wide doesn’t arrive until Thursday. First Alert days remain in place through Friday as periods of rain and storms are still likely, though it won’t be a washout all day long.

A few showers and rumbles of thunder will linger into Saturday, but we will gradually dry out. By Sunday, mostly dry conditions will have returned, and we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds. Highs both afternoons will reach the upper 70s and we’ll wake up to the 60s both mornings.

Although dry, still warmer than average conditions will carry us into the start of next week!
