CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The spring-like warmth will return this week giving us a chance at some record-breaking or near record-breaking temperatures by Thursday. Until then, afternoon highs will warm each day and there will only be a few chances during the week for some hit-or-miss showers.

  • Monday: Partly sunny, warm.
  • Tuesday: Scattered showers, partly sunny and warm.
  • Wednesday: Scattered showers, mostly cloudy and warmer.

Let the warming trend begin! This week an upper-level ridge of high pressure expanding north over the Atlantic will bring some unseasonably warm weather to the Carolinas.

Overnight, we’ll stay mostly cloudy but dry with lows in the 40s.

Monday will include some showers at times for the mountains as a cold front stalls over Kentucky and Tennessee; expect highs in the 50s. In Charlotte, highs will warm into the upper 60s under partly sunny skies.

The warm conditions will continue for Tuesday and Wednesday but there will be chances for some widely scattered showers at times. Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will range from the low to mid 70s.

The record high temperature for Thursday is 79 degrees set back in 2018. We are forecasting Thursday to be a mostly sunny and breezy day with highs in the lower 80s (breaking the record).

Friday will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy and not as warm with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Next weekend still looks mild with chances for showers both on Saturday and Sunday; expect highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
