CHARLOTTE, NC — With the weekend’s freezing rain and Monday’s foggy start to the work week moving out of the Charlotte-metro region, the work week ahead is going to be a bit of a mixed bag, according to the National Weather Service.
The week will start off sunny on Monday, with a high of about 46, NWS said. Tuesday will be even warmer, with a high of about 56, but later that evening more rain moves back into the region.
You’ll need to keep your umbrella handy all day Wednesday, when the chance of precipitation is at 90 percent. The skies will clear out Thursday and Friday, however, more rain is headed to the Queen City area by the weekend.
Lows this week will stay in the low 30s.
