Tracking Overnight Rain

1-2" could fall east of the Metro, but much of the western half of the WCCB Charlotte viewing area should remain dry.

The wet start to 2021 continues tonight, at least for the eastern half of the WCCB Charlotte viewing area. A weak, but moisture-laden, area of low pressure will sweep across the central Carolinas overnight tonight, bringing rain for most communities east of I-77. While a few stray showers are possible to the west of the Metro, the mountains and Foothills should largely remain dry. Any straggling showers should largely clear out shortly after sunrise, setting us up for another comfortable Sunday afternoon with temperatures in the 50s and 60s to go along with variable clouds. A cooler, but stable, air mass arrives by Monday, allowing sunny skies and near-average temperatures to settle in through the first half of the week ahead.

Tonight: Rain, mainly east of Charlotte. Low: 51°. Wind: Light.

Sunday: AM few showers. PM partly cloudy. High: 60°. Wind: NW 5-10.

Sunday Night: Clearing out. Low: 35°. Wind: NW 5-10.

Monday: Plentiful sunshine. High: 55°. Wind: NW 5-10.
