Weekend forecast: Sunny skies with highs in the 50s

Once the dense fog clears out Friday morning, the Charlotte area is in for a relatively sunny and mild weekend, forecasters say.

A dense fog advisory will remain in place for the area till about 9 a.m., according to The National Weather Service.

Meteorologist Patrick Moore said it’s been several days since the region has seen much sun, but conditions will clear heading into Friday afternoon.

Friday’s high is expected to reach the lower 50s, which is about normal for this time of year, Moore said. Clear conditions will continue overnight with low temperatures dropping to around 30 degrees, he said.

“Saturday should be sunny again with a high around 50. Saturday night will start to see some clouds coming in during the overnight hours, with temperatures in the upper 30s,” Moore said.

There’s a 20 percent chance of a midday shower on Sunday, but the highs are still expected reach the mid-50s, he said, noting that daytime temperatures will likely remain in the low to mid-50s into late next week.
