CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Summer is back Wednesday as temperatures reached the upper 80s and the heat index east of the mountains is more than 90 degrees.
The vast majority of the rain is just showers so far with no lightning and has been confined to the mountains.
As showers have tried to push east they have weakened.
With the return of the warmth and humidity pop-up showers are possible through 7 p.m.
Severe Weather Center 9 is seeing evidence that showers will linger over the mountains deep into the evening.
A weak cold front makes a move on us Thursday passing through overnight.
A front will act as a trigger for a much better chance locally of thunderstorms.
Behind the front storm chances drop off, but we actually warm up with both weekend days in the low 90s.
A stronger cold front arrives early next week around Monday night or early Tuesday.
