First Alert: Much colder conditions are moving in
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Freeze alerts are in place for much of the region through mid-week!
- First Alert: Cold conditions stick around through the rest of the workweek
- Freeze alerts in place tonight, Tuesday night
- Warmer weekend ahead!
After starting off near 60-degrees and topping out at 80-degrees in Charlotte on Monday, much colder conditions are working in... As high pressure builds in behind a departing cold front, temperatures will drop to around 40-degrees in the Piedmont by Tuesday morning. Even colder temperatures are expected in the Foothills, and our Mountain communities will likely wake up to the mid 20s! A Freeze Warning is in effect until Noon as a result, so be sure to protect your plants and bring in your pets.
Tuesday’s high temperatures won’t recover much as the Mountains will only make it into the upper 30s, with Charlotte topping out in the upper 50s. A Freeze Watch will then go into effect Tuesday night into Wednesday morning for a large portion of the Piedmont as low temperatures plummet to near freezing.
Despite the sunshine, highs will still struggle to reach 60-degrees Wednesday afternoon. Anticipate the need for the winter coat each weekday morning from there! Morning lows won’t get back into the 40s by this weekend...
Weekend Forecast: This weekend is looking gorgeous! High temperatures improving to the 70s with lots of sunshine.
