CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Friday is a First Alert Weather Day as a cold front approaches from the west and brings us periods of rain and thunderstorms.

  • Friday: First Alert Weather Day, periods of rain and storms
  • Weekend: Chilly nights, beautiful days

Rain could impact parts of the morning commute with storms possible by the second half of the day. A few storms could be on the strong side with damaging wind gusts the main concern.
