Tuesday will feature wall-to-wall sunshine along with a nice temperature-turn-around. We’ll start cold but end up in the lower 60s.

Wednesday through Saturday will bring unseasonably warm temperatures, both by day and at night. Highs will make a run to at least the middle 60s Wednesday before jumping up in the to unseasonably warm 70s Thursday through Saturday. Charlotte’s record high temperature of 75° set in 1998 may be challenged Friday! Overnight lows will be mild as well, mainly in the 40s starting Wednesday night.

We’re in desperate need of rain, and a weak cool front may move across the Carolinas at some point over the weekend, perhaps knocking our high temperatures back closer to 60° by Sunday, but that’s about it. Unfortunately, at this point, the weekend rain chance stands at no more than 10%.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
