A cloudy, dry morning aside, meteorologists still expect rain to fall in Charlotte later Tuesday as a front blowing into the region produces sprinkles of rainfall throughout the rest of the week.
The National Weather Service predicts a 30 percent chance of rain in the region between noon and 3 p.m. Temperatures are expected to climb near a high of 55 degrees before dipping down to 46 Tuesday night.
By 9 a.m., it was 53 degrees in Charlotte.
Charlotte will likely see less than 1/10 inch of rain, said Scott Krentz, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Temperatures are expected to be at their highest Wednesday and Thursday with a peak of 62 both days.
