CHARLOTTE (PINPOINT WEATHER) — Clouds build with the 50s and 40s to start the day but winds will be relatively light throughout the morning.

We’re climbing to the low 70s Friday afternoon under mostly cloudy skies and the wind picking up out of the southwest anywhere between 10 to 15 mph. Wind gusts could reach upwards of 20+ miles per hour at times as a cold front approaches from the north and west.
