Sunshine Continues, Warmth Slowly Builds

Expect another chilly night across the Carolinas, but above-average temperatures arrive by Tuesday.

The coldest air we’ve seen since early May arrived last night, as near-freezing temperatures and patchy frost made a return to the WCCB Charlotte viewing area. Another round of Frost Advisories has been posted for virtually every county north of I-85 as the 30s and 40s settle into the Carolinas for another night. Temperatures will get back on the upswing, however, as a warmer airmass sweeps in from the west by midweek. Highs will hang just below 70º in the Piedmont and Foothills Sunday afternoon, while the High Country will struggle to get out of the 50s. By Wednesday, however, the 70s and 80s should make a strong return. Sunny skies will persist through the first half of the week ahead, as well.

Tonight: Clear and cold. Low: 42°. Wind: NE 5-10.

Sunday: Sunny and comfy. High: 68°. Wind: NE 5-10.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 48°. Wind: Light.

Monday: Sunshine continues. High: 74°. Wind: Light.
