Matthews, NC Overview

The sleepy farming community of Matthews began to change after World War II, affected by the sprawl of Charlotte’s real estate boom and residential growth into the countryside. The Interstate 485 outer beltway that connected Matthew directly with Interstates 77 and 85 as well as to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport greatly accelerating the area’s development.  Subdivisions and housing developments, businesses, a leading hospital, and several large corporations settled in Matthews.  As it enters the 21st century, Matthews is recognized as one of the region’s most affluent and desirable communities. At the same time, a quaint and small-town atmosphere still prevails in the downtown district with its charming antique shops.  Along the Highway 74 corridor, Matthews residents can find all the goods and services they need close to home.  Strip malls, spacious shopping centers, and fine or casual dining establishments thrive in this bustling commercial center.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
