  • Some relief from the heat this weekend


Extreme heat will continue to impact the region this week. Highs will reach the low to mid-90s each afternoon, but it will feel more like the triple digits when you factor in the humidity. The Bermuda High will push further west allowing a cold front to sink through the mid -Atlantic. The cold front will stall north of the area Tuesday. Expecting more scattered storms across the mountains and foothills tonight w/ isolated storms further south into the Piedmont. Storms will become more scattered Tuesday afternoon for the region with an increased severe threat possible. The biggest concerns will again be damaging wind and flash flooding as there won’t be much movement for storms once they develop. The cold front will finally press into the region this weekend, bringing at least some relief from the heat with highs back in the low 90s Saturday and Sunday.
