Brace yourself! The heat and humidity are making a comeback this week….Make sure you enjoy this brief break from the extreme heat while it lasts. We’re tracking more heat and humidity as we move through the week.

For our Monday evening, a couple of isolated showers and storms are possible early as a stationary front remains parked over the Carolinas. We’re not expecting widespread rain though.  Otherwise, we’ll see partly cloudy skies as we move through the night. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

On Tuesday, the stationary front to our south will begin moving north as a warm front, which could spark off a few more showers and thunderstorms. Otherwise, we’ll see partly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 80s. Rain chances will go up a bit into Wednesday. In fact, we’re expecting a few scattered showers and storms. A few storms could produce heavy rain and gusty winds. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s.

Highs in the 90s will return, along with more humidity, by Thursday through Saturday. Scattered showers and storms are possible Friday into the weekend. Highs will drop back into the upper 80s by Sunday and Monday.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Showers/Storms (20%). Low temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Sun and Cloud Mix. Scattered Showers/Storms (20-30%). High temperatures in the mid 80s. Winds: SE 5-15 mph.
