Showers that are falling across the Charlotte region Wednesday will be a water break in what otherwise will be pleasant conditions, forecasters say.
Several lines of light to moderate showers are moving across the area Wednesday. National Weather Service meteorologists say the precipitation could amount to a half-inch in the immediate Charlotte area, with the most significant rain coming around midday.
The upper-level low pressure system responsible for Wednesdays rain will push east of the area by tonight and early Thursday, and that will set the stage for several days of nice weather.
Pat Moore, of the Weather Services office in Greer, S.C., said, It looks like we will have a period of quiet early-autumn weather in store for the latter part of the week.
Morning fog Thursday is expected to yield to increasing amounts of sun during the day, with temperatures climbing into the upper 70s.
Clear skies are then predicted from Friday into early next week, with daytime highs approaching 80 degrees. The beautiful conditions also are expected for the mountains and coast this weekend.
Some might call it spectacular, if the forecast is right, Moore said.
