Fall-like weather arrives for the Bassmaster Southern Open at Lake Norman

The Bassmaster Southern Open returns to Lake Norman Thursday through Saturday. The forecast looks amazing!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Southern Open kicks off Thursday at Lake Norman. Takeoffs and weigh-ins will be happening through Saturday at Blythe Landing Park.

This marks the fifth time Lake Norman has hosted a Bassmaster Open event, but the most recent one occurred back in 2018. It's been a while, but the weather may make it worth the wait.

The forecast this week and weekend for outdoor activities could not be better. It feels truly fall-like with low humidity and temperatures below average.

Sunshine will be abundant today with high temperatures reaching the mid-70s. Wind will be light out of the north around 5 mph, so it shouldn't impact those on the boat too much.

Temperatures will return to the 80s by Sunday, but it'll still feel comfortable outside. Rain chances also remain extremely low over the next week.
