Charlotte Weather: Big Improvements For The Work Week
CHARLOTTE, NC — Clear, sunny skies will hold off gloomy, cold winter weather a few more days in Mooresville as this week will be filled with plenty of sunshine. Until Thursday, when rain moves back into the region, that is. The dreary weather won’t stick around for too long, and the weekend will be one to look forward to, according to forecasters.
Monday starts off strong with a high near 60 degrees, however, temperatures will cool off a bit by Wednesday, when the high is expected to barely rise above 50 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
You’ll need your umbrella on hand Thursday and Friday, when there’s a better than 70 percent chance of rain. The sunshine returns by the weekend, when clear sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-50s are expected both Saturday and Sunday.
