The Charlotte area won’t be escaping the extreme heat and humidity just yet as the hottest week of the year swelters on.
Wednesday’s highs will climb back into the low-to-mid 90s by the afternoon – the third day in a row of at least 90 degrees (the longest such stretch last year was only four days).
The heat index will make conditions feel even warmer. A few storms will pop up Wednesday afternoon, but the rain won’t do much to cool things down.
Temperatures in the 90s are expected to stick around through the weekend.
Only a few downpours are expected around the region Wednesday, and the area will see more chances for storms by the end of the weekend.
Looking ahead to next week, we may finally see a break from the heat as temperatures will hopefully cool back into the 80s.
