Closing the Book on Dry Spell

A series of rainmaking systems will sweep through the Carolinas, setting us up for what should be a soggy workweek.

After last night’s showers only delivered a trace of rain to the Charlotte Metro, our dry streak has lived to see its 13th consecutive day. While it should reach the fortnight mark after Sunday, it will be all but assured to come to an end by the start of the workweek. An expansive rainmaking system will sweep into the WCCB Charlotte viewing area later on Monday, bringing widespread shower activity into the first half of Tuesday. Unfortunately, this system will be only an appetizer compared to what follows. A second area of low pressure will arrive by Wednesday, and this storm will have some staying power. Anywhere between 1-3″ may fall across the region through Friday morning, with locally higher amounts possible. At least the weekend looks sunnier (for now)!

Tonight: Cloudy and mild. Stray shower possible. Low: 50°. Wind: NE 5-10.

Monday: Mostly cloudy. Showers possible later in the day.  High: 53°. Wind: E 5-15.

Monday Night: Rain. Low: 41°. Wind: NE 5-10.

Tuesday: AM rain. PM cloudy. High: 51°. Wind: NE 5-10.
