Rain is coming overnight into Sunday morning

Soaking rain early Sunday. Some improvements by kickoff at 1 p.m.



Clouds are rolling in this evening after a beautiful start to the weekend with sunshine and warm temperatures. Expect a 180º change for tomorrow's weather as rain moves into the Charlotte area overnight. 

Rain chances will gradually increase after midnight along with mild temperatures in the 40s and 50s. 


Wet, windy, and warm as a storm system swings through the region Sunday morning. Scattered rain may become heavy at times along with an isolated thunderstorm, and gusty winds upwards of 35 mph.  Use caution and give yourself some extra time while on the road in these poor driving conditions. 

Some improving conditions are timing out nicely just in time for Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff as the Panthers take on the Broncos in Uptown. However, you'll near your poncho and umbrella for tailgating. 

A few storms are possible tomorrow as the front brings rain, but that potential is mainly in the morning. Strong-to-severe storms could develop south and east of the Charlotte area, but not locally. 

Next Week's Bullet Points

  • Highs near 60, calm and dry Monday and Tuesday 
  • Wettest day of the workweek is going to be Wednesday. 
  • Freezing temperatures expected Friday morning
