SUNDAY: It was a mild start Sunday morning, with temperatures around Charlotte in the mid-40s. A few neighborhoods saw some areas of patchy fog, but it was not a big issue.

More sunshine is expected throughout the day Sunday, and temps will be warmer, around 72 degrees, coming close to the record of 76 degrees.

The mountains will have a few more clouds to deal with, and will make it to the mid-50s.
