CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Increasing clouds will round out the workweek before our next First Alert Weather Day this weekend as a few showers and possible stray storm move in.

  • Friday: Increasing clouds, near-average temperatures, stray shower late.
  • Weekend: Few showers on Saturday; warmer, isolated storms on Sunday.
  • Next Week: Warm, humid, scattered storms.

After waking up to the upper 30s in the mountains and mid to upper 40s across the Charlotte Metro, Friday morning, temperatures will quickly climb back into the mid 70s by Friday afternoon.


Clouds will increase throughout the day Friday with a stray shower possible by the late evening hours, mainly southwest of the Charlotte-Metro area.

First Alert Weather Day: Scattered showers remain possible by Saturday, especially in the morning for our central and southwestern counties, but rain chances are trending down. Temperatures will likely only reach the 60s Saturday afternoon, but rebound back into the upper 70s by Sunday. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible on Sunday.

We’re expecting a big warm-up into next week with highs back in the mid 80s from Monday through Wednesday. Almost each and every day will also feature at least a low-end chance for showers and thunderstorms.
