Rain expected to clear Friday night, 70s expected Saturday



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Northwest of Interstate 85 should be sunny and close to 70 while southeast Charlotte is still wet Friday afternoon.

The latest guidance ends the rain in Charlotte by about 5 p.m., but it will hang around to the south and east through 6 p.m.

Football fields will be wet, but nothing will fall from the sky in the Charlotte area Friday night with the rain tapering off to the south. Fog is a possibility Friday night.

A nice weekend is coming up, but it will be cooler Sunday. As the cooler air pushes in Saturday, there will be some mountain showers and a rain chance in Charlotte is about 10 percent. The area will stay chilly with a good amount of sun into early next week.

Temperatures will be near 70 degrees Saturday and in the low 60s on Sunday. Chances are temperatures will be just below 60 Monday and Tuesday before starting to warm up.
