FORECAST: Back to the 80s this afternoon

Mid to upper 80s Saturday/cooler Sunday

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Friday:

Afternoon temperatures should reach the low 80s Friday. Lows at night will be in the low 60s. Rain chances are quite low. You may see a few darker clouds and a sprinkle at most, so let's call it a dry couple of days.

This Weekend:

Highs Saturday will be above the average for early June, which is 84 degrees. Look for high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Sunday's high will be in the upper 70s to around low 80. This could be the first shot at 90 degrees on Saturday for the year. 

Tropical Potential:

The chance of a tropical depression or tropical storm has been upgraded to moderate. This low looks to gain a center of circulation over the coming days and has a good chance to become our first named storm of the season which would be Arlene. This is trending to track south towards Cuba by the weekend but still could have some Florida impacts.
