CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - We’ll have a cold start, but warm finish to our Saturday ahead of our First Alert Weather Day on Sunday with rain possible at times throughout the day.

  • Saturday: Cold start, comfortable afternoon.
  • Sunday: Rain possible early NW of I-50; otherwise many stay dry until the evening hours.
  • Next Week: Multiple opportunities for rain!

It was a dry and just below-average end to our work week and temperatures will drop quickly once again into the overnight hours.

Seven-day forecast
Seven-day forecast(WBTV First Alert Weather)

Anticipate morning lows in the 20s across the area, with lows in the upper 20s around the Charlotte Metro.

Although we’ll see filtered sunshine at times as high clouds build in throughout the day, high temperatures will reach the upper 50s to near 60 degrees Saturday afternoon.

Dry conditions will persist through much of Sunday for most of the area, but rain chances will trend upwards as early as Saturday morning for areas along and northwest of I-40. Otherwise, anticipate increasing rain chances for the Charlotte Metro and surrounding areas later in the day/evening.

Fortunately, Sunday won’t be a washout like what we had last Sunday and last Wednesday!

Rain will work east of the area by Monday morning and temperatures will rebound from highs in the upper 50s on Sunday to the low to mid 60s by Monday afternoon.

A quick moving disturbance could bring a few showers to the area on Tuesday, but a better chance for rain arrives Wednesday-Thursday. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates!
