CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Below-normal temperatures to last through the work week.

First Alert: Rain chances pick up Friday

  • Thursday: Low to mid 80s and a few showers, rumbles of thunder
  • Friday: First Alert in place ahead of next best chance for rain
  • Weekend: Warmer with scattered showers and storms

It was yet another cooler than average day! Even though we were five to ten degrees warmer than we were Tuesday, Charlotte’s high temperature only reached 83° Wednesday afternoon.

Temperatures will drop into the mid 50s for our mountain communities and the mid 60s for the rest of us overnight before temperatures rebound back into the low 80s. Thursday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a few showers, rumbles of thunder developing by the afternoon/evening hours.

First Alert: The stalled front situated to our south will lift northward at the tail end of the work week and will bring us our next best chance for rain. Storms will also be possible Friday afternoon and evening, but the best chance for severe weather looks to be just to our southeast for now... Although it won’t be a washout, you’ll want to keep your umbrellas and WBTV First Alert Weather Apps handy!

Scattered showers and storms will be possible Saturday as well, but coverage looks more impressive Sunday and Monday. Also anticipate the mid to upper 80s and humid conditions by the time we approach the weekend.

Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates and have a great rest of your week!
