Isolated Strong Storms Today, Drier Pattern Ahead

The strongest storms could be packing heavy rainfall and damaging wind gusts.

 

Much of the WCCB viewing area is under a level 1 risk (out of 5) for severe weather Wednesday. While most of these storms will be few and far between – and even fewer will be severe – some of them could be bringing heavy rainfall, golf-ball-sized hail, and damaging wind gusts of up to 70 mph. For the most part, though, expect much of Metrolina and the mountains to stay dry Wednesday afternoon. This will be the hottest we’ve been in a while, with temperatures in the lower 90s and heat indices making it feel like mid-to-upper 90s. Tonight, we will stay muggy as lows only fall into the lower 70s for most of us. Thursday is shaping up to be a beautiful day thanks to drier air settling in across the region. However, temperatures will stay warm for the foreseeable future, buzzing around in the lower 90s.

Tonight: Storms clearing out early. Low 70°. Light wind.

Thursday: Beautiful and dry. High 92°. NW 5-15

Thursday Night: A lovely night. Mostly clear. Low 70°. Light wind.

Friday: Mostly sunny, humidity comes back. High 92°. Wind: N 5-10
