After a round of heavy rain and storms Thursday evening that dumped 1-3″ of rain over parts of Mecklenburg County alone, we’re waking up to a mostly cloudy sky with areas of patchy light rain left-over.
We’re waking up to another delightful morning with temps in the 50s & 60s as humidity remains low for the time of year. Dew point temps will generally hold in the 50s (comfortable range) through today.
A Heat Advisory remains in effect through early this evening. It was another day in the low 90s in Charlotte, but it actually wasn't nearly as hot as yesterday when we ended up with a 98° high for the day.
As anticipated the hardest hit areas of storms this afternoon have been south of I-85 into South Carolina where many areas have had intense and frequent lightning, in addition to heavy rain for a large majority of the afternoon.
We do not expect today to be as hot, and in fact some areas may not even reach 90° for the first time in about a week. With that in mind, more rounds of storms are expected to refire this afternoon as well as both weekend days.
A cluster of thunderstorms is moving through Illinois and Missouri right now and will travel along a warm front through Kentucky, Tennessee, and eventually into the Carolinas late tonight, between about midnight and 5am.
