A combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will lead to elevated heat index values ranging from the mid 90s to near 100 this afternoon. There’s also the potential for the development of a few isolated thunderstorms this afternoon.
Today's cloud cover will soon give way to another round of isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms during the late afternoon and early evening hours as an upper level disturbances impacts our weather pattern in the short-term.
Some communities including Charlotte could experiences isolated gusty winds and heavy downpours over a relatively short-period of time before the system moves out and stalls just southeast of the WBTV viewing area later tonight.
Some of these storm cells could potentially produce abundant of lightning, gusty winds and hail up to an inch in diameter as they trek west to east across the WBTV viewing area into the early evening hours.
Heavy tropical downpours and intermittent gusts will spread across the WBTV viewing this evening and into early Thursday morning, with the highest rainfall amounts mainly favoring communities east of the I-77 corridor as the center of the storm moves over Central North Carolinas.
