Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

* Hottest Day of Year
* Few Cooling Storms
* Improved Air Quality

Today should top yesterday and Thursday's high of 96° by a degree or so, making for the hottest day of the year. Even into Sunday, we're still in the mid 90s, so we've got two more days ahead of this oppressive stretch.

Heat Indices today will run the low 100s, and a Heat Advisory is in effect for Stanly, Anson, Richmond, and Chesterfield counties from 11am to 7pm. One positive? Air quality has improved, so we no longer have a Code Orange in effect.

Like the last few evenings, cooling showers and storms will be hard to come by, and those that do develop will likely be confined to the mountains.

Sunday storm coverage may be up slightly to around 30% with highs continuing in the mid 90s and feels like temps in the triple digits.

Better relief comes early next week with a more active storm pattern leading to "cooler" temps in the low 90s-- eventually upper 80s mid-late week.

Stay cool!
