FORECAST: Clearing skies, drier air, and a gorgeous weekend.

The heat returns next week.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tonight:

Clearing skies with much drier air moving in from the west. Temperatures will slowly fall back into the upper 50s to low 60s by Saturday morning. 

Saturday:

A mostly sunny and very cool night with low humidity and temperatures only climbing into the low 60s. Plenty of sunshine and no chance of rain. With clear skies, calm winds, and dry air we could see low Saturday night drop into the upper 50s again. 

Sunday and Memorial Day Monday:

Sunny and warmer Sunday but still not bad for late May. Highs on Sunday will be in the mid-80s with light northwest winds. Perfect weather for the Coca-Cola 600 Sunday evening. 

Monday is mostly sunny and getting hotter and more humid with highs in the upper 80s to near 90°. There will be increasing humidity and maybe a very isolated.

Next Week:

Mother Nature is turning up the heat as we exit May and begin the new month of June! Highs will reach the low 90s Tuesday and in the mid-90s Wednesday. This is the 1st week of meteorological summer so the heat and humidity are right on schedule. We could see isolated pop-up storms develop once this summer pattern starts to set up. 

Tropics:

June first starts the hurricane season in the Atlantic but nothing out there to keep an eye on yet. Meanwhile, in the eastern Pacific which has already started its season, we could see the first storm of the season over there.
