Record-tying high before cooler weather moves back in

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - We have tied a record high in Charlotte on Wednesday at 86 degrees. The last time the temperature hit 86 degrees on April 2 was in 2010.

The trend the next few days through the weekend will feature more clouds and will gradually cool back down.

Thursday will begin with clouds in the Charlotte area with the possibility of showers in the mountains. This won’t stop us from enjoying one more day in the 80s.

Two cold fronts will move through starting Friday and will bring a decent rain chance, but only a few showers will survive the journey into the Charlotte metro area.

The sun returns on Saturday which will bring a great start to the weekend with mid-70s. A northeast breeze will keep us in the mid-60s which is cool compared to where we’ve been this week, but it is actually average for early-April.

Rain will develop Sunday night and continue for most of Monday with a chance of a thunderstorm as well.

Behind the system, we will cool down even more for the middle of next week.
