• Cool, wet weather to dominate the area

    By: John Ahrens


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Cool and wet weather will dominate the Carolinas over the next few days.

    There will be some heavy showers hanging around the area, mostly just east of the Charlotte area with clouds sticking around for most of the work week.

    Monday's storm, which includes the remnants of Karen, will intensify off the Carolina coast. This will serve to pour cool New England air into the area making temperatures drop into the low 50s tonight.

    As the cool air keeps coming in, clouds will thicken and not budge over Charlotte. Temperatures will barely get above the 60s during the afternoon on Tuesday with the possibility of a shower or two.

    This is a familiar pattern known in this area as the wedge, where cool air sits and wedges against the mountains. There may not be much sunshine until later this week as a result of the wedge.
