• Warmth continues heading into Memorial Day weekend

    By: Vicki Graf


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Friday morning has started warmly, with temperatures in the mid-60s. Temps will warm up quickly again by the afternoon, but not quite as warm as Thursday.

    Highs will be near 87 degrees in Charlotte, which is still well above average for this time of year.

    A cold front will move south of the metro area Friday afternoon and that will kick off a few showers and storms late this afternoon.

    The best chance for the rain will be south of Charlotte from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. There could even be some stronger storms across the eastern Carolinas Friday but most likely, Charlotte will stay dry.

    Dry and somewhat cooler air will move in for Memorial Day weekend. Saturday we will see sunny skies with highs in the low 80s.

    It will be a bit warmer on Sunday. One of the models Channel 9’s Severe Weather Center is tracking is trying to bring a few showers through on Sunday, with a chance for a pop-up shower or storm on Memorial Day.

    This would be typical to what we see in the summertime, so any rain won't lead to a washout.
