FORECAST: Another nice day for the area

Rain chance increases this weekend

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Today:

Today will be mostly sunny with a few stray storms in the afternoon. Look for highs in the low 80s. Skies will be partly cloudy in the evening and mostly cloudy overnight with lows in the mid to upper 60s.

This weekend:

Temperatures will continue to climb into the mid to the upper 80s over the weekend. Each day has a 20-30% chance for rain. Each morning looks to be dry with the best chances for thunderstorms coming in the mid to late afternoon and the evening. 

Next week:

Afternoon temperatures return to the upper 80s with more humidity and the chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. There are no major rain or weather systems forecasted over the next seven days. 


A tropical wave coming off the African coast has a 40% chance of developing over the next 5 days as it makes its way westward across the Atlantic. This is already a large group of thunderstorms that has a promising sign to rotate tighter together. By the end of the weekend or to begin next week we could have our 4th named storm, Danny. This would be the 4th earliest "D" name on record.
