Warmer into Monday, then cooler and wetter midweek

The next chance of rain and cooler temperatures arrives midweek.



A beautiful evening is underway across the Charlotte area. Conditions will remain nice and dry along with mild temperatures. Expect overnight lows in the lower 60s with partly cloudy skies. 

This Week

Much warmer temperatures to kick off the week. Expect temperatures in the mid 80s, which is above the seasonal average high temperature. In addition, drier weather sticks around Monday despite passing clouds. 

Rain chances will increase by midweek. You'll notice an increase in cloud cover by Tuesday, but rain chances will remain low during the daylight hours as the next system approaches the region.

Rain chances this week

Expect a few days through mid/late week with scattered rain, more clouds, and cooler temperatures. Long-range models indicate most areas will dry out by the weekend. Weekend temperatures will range in the mid 70s as the Panthers return home for Sunday's game in Charlotte. 

Tropical Update

Tropical Storm Philippe formed Saturday afternoon in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Long-range models indicate this storm stays out to sea, but it's something we'll watch closely. It's followed by a new tropical wave just off the African coast with a medium chance of formation. A second wave in the southern Gulf of Mexico has a low chance of further development.
