  • It will be just about as hot today as yesterday. However, we can expect some minor humidity relief coming our way this evening.
  • Highs warm to the mid-to-upper 90s once again, and the heat index still climbs to 100 or higher.
  • Today’s only heat advisories are far east for Anson, Stanly, and Richmond counties.
  • There will be little to no chance of rain again today. However, the humidity relief will be more noticeable tomorrow.
  • Highs still reach the mid-90s, but there won’t be any real heat index to worry about.
  • The steam returns on Friday and lasts through the weekend as temperatures stay in the 90s.
  • As far as rain chances go, little is coming our way. The better chance for rain on Friday looks like it is going to stay well off to our east.
  • A few pop-up downpours can’t be ruled out through the weekend.
