FORECAST: Warm today with a slight chance of rain

Very hot for the upcoming weekend

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — g.  

This week:

Monday will be partly cloudy with slightly higher humidity and an isolated shower/storm chance near 20%. The highs will be around 80°. Tuesday and Wednesday will be very similar with each day having afternoon clouds or a very isolated shower chance at 20%. 

End of the week:

As a ridge of high pressure builds over the southeast, we'll dry out and warm up! Expect plenty of sunshine Thursday and Friday with highs in the middle to upper 80s! 

Rain chances will be very scarce, which is not good for parts of the Carolinas who have now been upgraded to a moderate drought status.

By next weekend we will get the hottest weather of the year. We will hit 90° for the first time next weekend and temperatures will stay in the 90s in early next week.
