CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Colder, drier air will settle into the Carolinas after the passage of a cold front tonight. Along with the cool down, look for chances for rain to return by Tuesday.

  • Sunday: Mostly sunny, breezy, and colder.
  • First Alert Weather Day Monday: Freezing cold AM, sunny and cool PM.
  • First Alert Weather Day Tuesday: Showers likely, chilly afternoon.

After a cloudy and mild Saturday our main concerns for Sunday into early next week will be a 15-20 degree drop in temperatures and an area of low pressure moving out the Gulf of Mexico which will likely bring some rain to our area on Tuesday.
