CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A comfortable, mainly dry workweek is ahead before rain chances return as we approach Memorial Day Weekend.

  • Tuesday: Partly to mostly cloudy, upper 70s.
  • End of Week: Stray shower possible, near normal.
  • Memorial Day Weekend: Opportunities for rain.

Mid and high-level clouds will be moving in for our Tuesday, with morning lows in the upper 50s and afternoon highs topping out in the upper 70s.

The next few days are looking warm and dry with minimal chances for rain.

High pressure to our northeast will keep us dry through the middle of the week, with Wednesday looking and feeling very similar to Tuesday.

As a cold front sinks southward into the area on Thursday, a stray shower will be possible, but most locations will stay dry with highs reaching right around the 80-degree mark.

By Memorial Day Weekend, we’ll be watching an area of low-pressure to our south that could bring rain chances our way on Saturday. This would keep temperatures in the upper 60s/lower 70s for the start of the weekend.

Although Sunday is looking drier with highs in the mid 70s, an upper-level low could spark additional showers by Memorial Day. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates as we get closer!
