CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Winter-like conditions on the way for the end of the weekend!
- Seasonable Wednesday ahead
- First Alert: Tropical impacts likely Thursday-Friday
- Colder temperatures arrive by Sunday
After a well above-average start to the work week, more seasonable conditions are on the way for our Wednesday. Anticipate a chilly start across the area with morning lows dropping into the 30s in the mountains and low-mid 40s for the rest of us. Afternoon high temperatures will top out in the mid 60s. Dry conditions will last through Thursday morning!
FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS: Tropical Storm Nicole is just shy of hurricane status and is forecast to become a category one hurricane by Wednesday morning. Our local impacts increase Thursday afternoon and will last through Friday night. Periods of heavy rainfall are our main concern as 1-3″+ are possible. Wind gusts up to 40mph will also be possible in this timeframe. As the track continues to shift westward, we’ll have to keep a close eye on the potential for brief tornadoes. Stay tuned for frequent forecast path and timing updates as we get closer!
By this weekend, a cold front will quickly push Nicole away from us and usher in MUCH colder conditions. Although Saturday will be seasonable, Sunday will feature morning lows in the upper 30s and afternoon highs in the 50s. We get even colder into the start of next week! Well below-average temperatures look to linger through the extended forecast.
Have a great week and check back in for tropical updates!
