CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - It’s been a gorgeous start to the last week of summer, but fall could start with rain in parts of the Carolinas.

  • WEDNESDAY: Seasonable & dry
  • END OF WEEK: Increasing clouds, lowering temperatures
  • WEEKEND: Watching placement & timing of a coastal low

High pressure is in control and will leave us with dry conditions through the middle of the work week. Once again, temperatures will be able to drop back into the 50s Wednesday morning before lifting back into the low to mid 80s by the afternoon hours.

A few more clouds build in for Thursday, but it will still be a dry and seasonable day overall!

On Friday we will start to see things changing a bit. Some cloud cover will start to build and small rain chances will return to the higher elevations and highs will return to the 70s.

Seasonable, dry, & comfortable days ahead!

Looking ahead to the weekend, a coastal low will likely develop and head north. But the timing and placement of that low is still being assessed and will have implications on the extent of the rain and gusty winds. At this point, scattered showers look possible, mainly along and east of I-77, likely along and east of the I-95 corridor. We’ll also likely see some gusty winds from Friday into the weekend. Check back in for frequent forecast updates as we get closer! High temperatures as a result of the added cloud cover will only reach the low to mid 70s Saturday afternoon!
