CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Welcome to early fall, the driest time of the year in the area, according to severe Weather Team 9 chief meteorologist Steve Udelson.
Udelson said he doesn't see much of a chance of rain around the Charlotte area until late Sunday or Monday when a cold front moves in. The mountains may see a pop-up shower Thursday afternoon, but chances are not high.
It will continue to be unusually warm, with highs in the mid-80s for the next couple of days and the low-80s over the weekend with a few more clouds. The lows each night will be around 60 degrees.
Udelson said the team is watching the Caribbean for tropical development. There is a good chance a new depression will form any time and conditions are good for strengthening through Friday as it moves north into the Gulf. Some of that moisture might enhance the rain Monday.
Next chance for possible rain comes early next week
