CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It’s another stellar spring day. The area is seeing temperatures in the mid-60s with sunshine. 
 
Two disturbances will pass through this weekend. The first is Saturday afternoon and while the mountains will see showers, rain chances in the Charlotte metro are only about 10 percent.  The area will cool off dramatically for Sunday, with highs in the 50s and a much better bet for light rain.

The area will catch a decent, but chilly day Monday before the next system rolls in.
 
A storm will develop and push off the Southeast coast. Latest guidance is in good agreement that the storm will be farther away from the coast than what was forecast Thursday, which will make a big difference in what the area will face. If this track holds, Charlotte will be on the far back edge of the steady precipitation early Tuesday, limiting accumulation of rain and/or snow. Some wet snow is still possible, especially north of Charlotte, but at this point, it looks like it should not impact travel.

The storm will clear out late Tuesday and through the middle of next week it will slowly warm up.
