Another hot and humid day could spark some PM storms

Posted: Updated:

Drying Out and Heating Up: Early Thursday, expect the cloud cover to decrease and plenty of sunshine will be present before lunchtime.  This will allow our temperatures to shoot up pretty quickly, getting into the 90s Upstate by this afternoon, with upper 80s in the mountains.

More Afternoon Storms: With the heat and humidity building once again, showers and thunderstorms are a possibility this afternoon and evening.  Without the "shortwave" disturbance from Wednesday, I don't think we'll see quite as many storms, but those that do pop-up could be slow moving, with strong winds, downpours, and plenty of lightning similar to what we saw Wednesday.

The Next Few Days: Middle 80s to low 90s continue, with a mix of sun and clouds on Fri/Sat.  Afternoon storms will be possible each day, with the potential for some to turn strong or severe.  Sunday is where we're looking at a weak cold front to move through, bringing mostly cloudy skies and a more widespread chance for on & off rain/storms all day.
