While temperatures will be on the rise, rain chances remain in the pits.
In case you haven’t noticed, we need the rain. With only two more days left in November, Charlotte is still sitting just under an inch of rain for the month, which is two inches below normal. Over 75% of the Carolinas is under at least abnormally dry conditions, a number that likely won’t improve this week. A cold front arrives in the Carolinas this evening, but rain is not in the forecast for much of the area. A few rain and snow showers are possible in the mountains, but nothing will accumulate.
While rain isn’t in the forecast, a steady warm-up is. That said, a wintry chill will kick off our workweek on the backside of the cold front. Expect lows in the 20s and 30s for the next two mornings, as highs struggle to get out of the 40s and 50s Monday afternoon. The week may start off cold, but southwesterly winds will fuel warmer weather for the remainder of the week. The sunny 70s return to the forecast by the back half of the week ahead.
