CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – Above-average temperatures and humidity levels are back in the forecast again today with a mix of clouds and sunshine and little chance for much cooling rain.

  • Today: Hot and humid, heat index near 100 degrees
  • Wednesday: Temporary break from the heat and humidity
  • Late week: Big heat returns, thunderstorm chance too

Highs today will top out in the middle 90s while the heat index tops out near 100 degrees for at least a couple of hours this afternoon.

It’ll be partly cloudy and mild tonight with lows mostly in the 60s.

A welcome change arrives Wednesday, as a back-door front drifts south from Virginia early in the day. Behind the front are cooler, more seasonal temperatures in the mid to upper 80s under sunshine-filled skies.

Thursday will bring a return to high heat with readings back in the lower 90s before we shoot back into the mid to upper 90s on Friday. Saturday will still be hot with the mid-90s forecast, but the day will likely end with thunderstorms, perhaps a few on the strong side. Behind a stout cool front, Sunday and Monday will bring much cooler weather with a lingering rain risk.
