CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Near-record high temperatures are on the way through Friday before a cold front changes everything up by Sunday.

  • Warm, dry work and school week ahead
  • Cold front brings passing showers Saturday
  • Cool sunshine returns Sunday

It’s a dry start for all of us, foggy start for some as temperatures are on either side of 60° this morning. With high pressure in control the next couple of days, expect those dry conditions to persist through Friday as temperatures climb gradually each morning and afternoon. Generally speaking, we’ll start off in the mid 60s the next couple of mornings, and top out in the mid-upper 80s each afternoon!

By this weekend, a cold front will have moved through the area and dropped our temperatures significantly. This front will bring a few showers with it, increasing in coverage from west to east Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon. We’ll still be warm and above-average Saturday, but much cooler and drier conditions will move in by Sunday.

The week ends on a warm note before cooler temperatures arrive this weekend.

Anticipate morning lows in the upper 40s Sunday morning and highs barely reaching 70°! Lots of sunshine is also in the forecast as high pressure takes over again through the middle of next week.

Have a great rest of your week!
