Temperatures in the mid-70s are in store for the Charlotte region Wednesday, but so is rain and a chance of thunderstorms.
The warm front is expected to slip back to the south as a cold front moves in Wednesday night and settles in just south of the region Thursday and Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
“Moist and unsettled conditions will result and likely linger into the weekend,” the Weather Service reported early Tuesday. “Drier conditions will arrive Sunday into Monday.”
Wednesday’s high could climb to 75 degrees, although the chance of precipitation, including thunderstorms, stands at 50 percent.
A cold rain is likely Thursday, when the high is expected to drop to 59 degrees.
Friday will get even colder, with the high expected to reach only 49, with showers continuing, according to the NWS.
Showers also are likely Saturday, when the high is forecast to move back up a bit, to 62 degrees.
The rain is expected to finally move out by Sunday, when partly sunny skies are forecast with a high near 65.
