Sunday will be even warmer, with high temperatures in the upper 80s, and the chance for a few rain showers and thunderstorms. Even though organized severe weather is not anticipated this weekend, a few strong storms will be possible, with gusty winds and heavy rainfall.

A total lunar eclipse will occur Sunday night. Moonrise will be around 8:05 pm Sunday, out of the east-southeast, with a partial eclipse beginning around 10:27 pm. The total lunar eclipse will begin at 11:29 pm Sunday, and end just before 1 am Monday. Sunday night is also the full moon, which will appear larger than normal as its orbit will be closer to earth, and appear as a “supermoon”. Unfortunately, skies are expected to be mostly cloudy Sunday night, so cloud cover could be an issue.

Hotter next week

Hotter temperatures develop for next week, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees through midweek next week, with daily chances for isolated storms. High temperatures are expected to be in the lower 90s by the end of the work week! Just think, Mother’s Day Sunday, Charlotte had a high temperature of only 60 degrees, and about 10 days later, we may have highs in the lower 90s.
