A much drier airmass is blowing in today on west winds that are gusty at times. A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect for a good chunk of western North and South Carolina. Highs will top out in the 70s with lots of sun.
The weather this weekend will be fantastic with a sunny sky, 70s for highs, and 40s for lows. That also means great weather for the races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the high school football games this evening, and any of the college football games across the region Saturday.
A sharp cold front will slice through later Tuesday or early Wednesday. With the front will come some rain and storm chances, and behind the front, the chilliest air so far this season will flow in. Highs Thursday and Friday will likely struggle to reach the lower side of the 60s in the Piedmont with morning lows well down into the 30s by Friday morning.
