Discussion:
Another hot and steamy day with highs reaching the upper 90s across the region. An air quality alert is in effect until 3:30 pm for Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties. It will feel more like the triple digits this afternoon when you factor in the humidity. This steamy pattern will stretch into Friday, but start to break down this weekend. Low 90s return to the forecast this weekend with a chance for an afternoon storm after a cold front sinks into the region. Rain and storm chances looks better to end the weekend and start the next week with temps falling well below average into the low 80s.
