CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - One last day in the low 80s before the cooler temperatures arrive.

  • Friday: Clouds and sun; few passing showers
  • Saturday: Early shower chance, otherwise turning breezy and cooler
  • Sunday: Chilly! Lots of sunshine

Temperatures will drop back into the low 60s as clouds and a few passing sprinkles move overhead for our Friday morning commute. Intervals of clouds and sun will then continue into Friday afternoon as high temperatures reach around the 80-degree mark. Another chance for showers arrives late and on into the overnight period as our cold front works overhead.

Although a lingering shower is possible early Saturday morning, clouds will quickly clear to the east and gusty winds will be ushering in our cooler temperatures through the rest of the weekend. Highs on Saturday will reach the low 70s and by Sunday morning, low temperatures will be in the low to mid 40s across a good portion of the area! We’ll even wake up in the 30s in our higher elevations, with winds making it feel more like the upper 20s.

Sunday afternoon will feature lots of sunshine, but even still, high temperatures will only warm into the upper 60s.

Dry conditions are likely to hold early week as well with a gradual warming trend back to the middle 70s by Tuesday and Wednesday.
