CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Our workweek will get off to a cool, dry start as high pressure slowly builds in from the west. Cool and dry conditions will continue through Tuesday. By Wednesday, we’ll be tracking an area of low pressure moving across Louisiana and Mississippi. This system will bring some moderate to heavy rainfall into Charlotte through Wednesday evening.
