THURSDAY: Conditions Thursday morning started off on the mild side, with patches of fog in many neighborhoods around Charlotte. Drivers had to deal with reduced visibility and wet roads due to Wednesday's rain.
That fog cleared out through the morning hours, with a mix of sun and clouds expected for the afternoon. Temperatures will warm into the mid-to-upper 60s Thursday, significantly above average for this time of year. Mainly clear conditions will continue overnight, with temps dropping into the low 50s.
FRIDAY: Friday will be even warmer, with highs climbing close to 70 degrees by the afternoon. Clouds will then begin to stream in across the Carolinas, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours.
This is all associated with our next weather system, which will bring some spotty showers for the mountains by Friday night. Isolated showers will be possible in the Charlotte metro and Midlands early Saturday morning.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Those showers look to clear by Saturday afternoon, but expect cloud cover to linger, with highs noticeably cooler in the mid-50s. The second half of the weekend will be dry, but clouds will remain. Even with the cloud cover, temps will manage to rebound back into the mid-60s to end the weekend.
Warmth still looks to be the main headline heading into the following work week, with temps staying in the 60s through Wednesday, with mostly cloudy conditions.
