  • There is a chance for light rain for the first half of the morning with heavier rain expected after 10 a.m. for the city.
  • Those clouds won’t allow for much heating, so our highs will stay in the upper 70s today.

  • Mecklenburg looks like it will get another round after 6 p.m.
  • Rainfall totals range from about .25-.75 with the highest amounts being west of I-77.
