Fans attending Sunday’s season-opener for the Carolina Panthers, Saturday’s Charlotte 49ers’ home game, or any other daytime football this weekend will need to remember the sunscreen and water.
It will feel a bit like summer in the Carolinas.
High pressure is expected to dominate the region again this weekend, providing mostly sunny skies and warm weather. Temperatures on Sunday could approach 90 degrees in Charlotte.

If you’re headed to a golf or tennis outing Saturday morning, or if your children have a soccer match or baseball game, you can expect sunshine and temperatures rising rapidly through the 70s.
Highs on Saturday will be in the middle 80s, climbing to the upper 80s Sunday. The temperature at kickoff Sunday for the Panthers-Seattle game will be near 80 degrees.
