CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Tracking our next cold front, just in time for Halloween plans.

  • Weekend: Near-record warmth, staying dry and mostly sunny
  • Halloween: Cool down begins as a front tracks East
  • Middle of next week: Below normal temperatures, spotty showers possible

Temperatures will continue to climb into the 80s tomorrow and stick around through the weekend! High pressure remains in place allowing for the warm-up and dry conditions. Near-record breaking heat will be possible too.

You won’t want to get too comfortable because a big cool down arrives by next week! We’re talking about highs returning into the 50s.

We haven’t had highs in the 50s since April 26th of this year! Plus, that’ll be over a 20 degree temperature drop from what is expected this weekend. Yikes!

As the changes arrive, we’ll be keeping a close eye on Halloween.

A cold front will slide across our region early next week aiding in the cooler weather for the holiday. We’ll be watching for the possibility of showers - but it’s not looking good.
