CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Temperatures are warming up as we approach midweek, before things cool back off toward the weekend as rain chances return.

  • Midweek: Seasonal 70s, low rain chance
  • Late Week: Cold front, better rain chance
  • Weekend: AM showers Saturday, cooling off for Sunday

Clouds will increase into our Wednesday with morning lows starting off in the low 50s and afternoon highs reaching the mid 70s. Although a stray shower or two is possible late, the better chance for scattered showers will arrive early Thursday. Shower chances will be highest to the south of the North Carolina and South Carolina state line, and will be short-lived.

By Thursday afternoon, sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s will return.

Wednesday will stay dry, but clouds will be on the increase as a storm system in the Gulf of Mexico drifts toward Florida which could bring a few isolated showers late Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Scattered showers possible to end the week and kick off the weekend.

The next chance for rain comes Friday and Friday night, as a cold front heads our way. Rainfall does not appear overly impressive at this point, with many areas only seeing a tenth to quarter of an inch from the system, but with it being so dry, we’ll take what we can get.

A drying trend will move in as we head into Saturday with highs holding in the 70s before backing down to the cooler 60s on Sunday and Monday.
