Friday: Partly sunny. Isolated showers and storms after noon. Hi: 91 Low: 71

It will be slightly cooler as we head into the weekend. 

This week’s weather conditions are responsible for the poor air quality we’ve been seeing lately. Air quality is at Code Orange Monday for the Charlotte area. Surface ozone levels may be unsafe for the elderly, the very young, or folks with breathing problems such as asthma or COPD.
