Above normal temperatures will stick around the Charlotte region for another day on Tuesday, with the high forecast to reach 81 degrees for the second straight day, under mostly sunny skies.

Wednesday will also stay sunny, although the high will reach only 62, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain will move into the region by Thursday, when the high is expected to fall to a below-normal 48 degrees, the Weather Service said.

The chance of precipitation is 70 percent Thursday, 80 percent Thursday night and 60 percent Friday, when the high will rebound to about 59, the Weather Service said.

Saturday is forecast to be partly sunny, with 64 as the high. That’s about the normal high for this time of year.

The fluctuating temperatures and shift from sun to rain and back again will make for a pretty typical week in March, the Weather Service’s Greenville-Spartanburg, S.C., office said in its weekly weather impact briefing.
