CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Temperatures dipped below freezing again this Wednesday morning but it didn't last for long.

This morning started out cold with temperatures in the upper 20s, but this afternoon the Charlotte region will see a warm up. Temperatures will reach into the low to  mid-50s.

"Over the few days will see a warm up," forecaster Larry Sprinkle said. "Today will be clear skies with temps in the mid 50s for the Charlotte area. The mountains will be in the mid-30s."

The mountain region is still experiencing winter weather with snow on the ground and cold temps. Avery, Ashe and Watauga County schools are closed for today due to the weather.

Tonight will be clear and cold for this time of the year. There's a Freeze Warning in effect from midnight through Thursday at 10 a.m. Lows will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.

The rest of the week is dominated by high pressure. The area should see sunny skies again Thursday with milder afternoon temperatures.

Highs Friday will be in the upper 50s on Saturday, and in the low to mid 60s for Easter Sunday. Monday's high will be in the upper 60s.

"It will close to 60 on Friday and Saturday," Sprinkle said. "There is a chance for a rain on Sunday but it will be mild with temperatures in the 60s."

The chance for rain makes a return to the forecast on Sunday. Shower chances linger into the beginning of next week, with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
