90s Streak Reaches 20th Straight Day

While it won't be a wash, widespread cloud and storm coverage can be expected for much of the day tomorrow.

The hot streak continues into Wednesday afternoon, as we just cracked the 90º mark for the 20th straight day here in the Queen City. That streak, however, could be in serious jeopardy, thanks to a rainmaking system settling over the Carolinas to close out the workweek. While widespread storm chances across the WCCB Charlotte viewing area won’t cool us down too much, it may be enough for us to fail to hit 90º for the first time since July 9th. Expect scattered afternoon showers and storms for the next few days as we head into the weekend, while highs should slowly recover back into the mid-90s by Sunday.

TROPICAL UPDATE: We’re still keeping an eye on Potential Tropical Cyclone #9, which should become Tropical Storm Isaías (ee-sah-EE-us) within the next 48 hours, if not sooner. While the forecast path still remains unclear, and future Isaías will have its work cut out for itself through the mountainous islands in the Caribbean, model trends keep it near the Florida coast by the end of the weekend. Isaías will probably not be a hurricane, much less a major one, by the time it reaches the US, but this is still something to watch closely heading into next week.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy. Widespread PM storms. High: 90°. Wind: SW 5-15.

Thursday Night: Scattered storms early, then mostly clear. Low: 73°. Wind: Light.

Friday: Scattered storms continue. A little warmer. High: 93°. Wind: SW 5-10.
