Don't be fooled by chilly morning, temps will reach into the 70s

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It might be a little more difficult getting out the door Monday morning as temperatures are on the colder side.

Frost is the main concern south of the Interstate 40 corridor and frost advisories are in place through 10 a.m.

But there is good news: a major warm-up is expected this week -- starting today.

The Charlotte area will see plenty of sunshine Monday with temperatures reaching the mid-70s.

The temps won’t drop as low overnight as they did this weekend, with lows forecasted in the 40s.

By Wednesday, high temperatures will be in the low 80s -- warm but not quite warm enough for any records to be threatened.

The weather will remain dry through the end of the week.

Severe Weather Center 9 is tracking a cold front that will approach on Friday.

One of the models delivers a brief window of showers and storms Friday afternoon. Another model brings that system through overnight Friday into early Saturday, but doesn't predict a lot of moisture through.

Since this is several days out, it will likely change.
