CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Our beautiful stretch of weather will continue for at least another day before rain chances move back in late in the week.

  • Tonight: Little light rain, mainly south of Charlotte
  • Late Week: More widespread, light rain Friday/Saturday

The clouds will be on the increase as a storm system along the northern the Gulf of Mexico coast drifts east toward Florida. This will bring us some small rain chances for late Wednesday night and Thursday morning. While we desperately need rain, the best chance with this system will be in the South Carolina Low Country.

After morning clouds and rain chances clear out, Thursday will turn out nice, with mostly sunny skies and highs rebounding to the upper 70s.

The next chance for rain comes late Friday, Friday night through Saturday morning, as a cool front heads our way from the west. Rainfall does not appear overly impressive at this point with totals maybe reaching a quarter of an inch in some areas.

A drying trend is forecast to start late in the day on Saturday with highs holding in the 70s before backing down to the cooler 60s, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
