A warm front will slide through Wednesday afternoon which will drive in hot air from the south. High temperatures for the daytime will be near 90 degrees, which would be the hottest day of the year so far. The mountains will have the best chance to see some showers for the late day and night, but it will not be much.

A few early morning showers Thursday are possible, especially for the mountains and foothills, with temperatures starting off in the mid-60s. Partly cloudy skies will continue for the rest of the day with even hotter high temperatures near 93 degrees. There is a slim chance to see an afternoon thunderstorm in the Piedmont. Overnight lows will drop to 67 degrees.

Friday will approach a record high temperature of 95 degrees back in 1964. Right now, the forecast high is 94 degrees with mainly sunny skies. The 90-degree heat continues into Saturday.
