Afternoon storms expected to fire up after muggy morning

by: Keith Monday Updated:


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Thursday morning began very warm, muggy and breezy in the Charlotte area.

No rain is expected to fall this morning but a better storm chance will fire up later Thursday afternoon. Heavy downpours are the main threat Thursday, along with lightning, small hail and strong winds.

Fortunately, there won’t be a big risk for severe weather. The best chance for storms will be along and south of Interstate 85.

High temperatures will top out around 90 degrees once again.

The threat for stormy weather will push south by Thursday evening, but won't be gone for long. Each afternoon into the weekend will bring a chance for heat-of-the-day thunderstorms.

Temperatures will stay in the mid-to-upper 80s through Sunday.
