Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

More clouds to start the day today, with partial clearing as the day progresses and high pressure builds in. Expect highs in the mid to upper 80s. A few 90s will be possible, especially in North Carolina. Mild overnight with lows in the low and mid 70s.

The higher dewpoints return on Sunday. Temperatures will warm to the low 90s, but it will feel more like the triple digits. A few storms could pop up Sunday afternoon or evening, but won't be a complete washout.

Hot and muggy to kickoff the work week. Highs will soar to the low 90s with heat index values in the triple digits. Conditions will be mostly dry with sunshine as high pressure takes over the area.

Basically the same story heading into Tuesday and Wednesday. Hot and humid with highs in the low 90s.

We'll keep a slight chance for a spotty shower or storm Wednesday through Friday. Doesn't look like anything too major right now, but we will continue to monitor. Highs will stay in the low 90s through the end of the work week.
