CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Good news for those of you heading outside Thursday: It will be refreshing as you walk out the door, with cooler, drier air in place.

Charlotte was very close to tying a record low Thursday morning (record is 62 degrees set in 2004). Temperatures will only warm to the mid-80s by the afternoon.

Sunshine and dry weather remain for now, but changes are coming for the weekend.

A few showers will pop up in the mountains Friday and that rain chance will grow in Charlotte through the weekend. These will not be all day downpours, just the afternoon variety.

Temperatures will stay below seasonal average, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s.
