Happy Wednesday - we made it to "Over the Hump" Day! While the early part of the week brought some wetter (and wilder) weather, things will settle down for the second half.
Today will bring partly cloudy skies and a small chance of a PM shower or thunderstorm. Any storms in the Upstate will be isolated at best. Western North Carolina areas (especially the southwest counties like Macon, Jackson and Transylvania Counties) will hold a slightly higher chance of precip - so watch for some hit-or-miss storms in these areas. Any storms could bring some heavy rain and frequent lightning - and a stronger storm could produce gusty winds, too.
Highs this afternoon will be the warmest of the week - near 90 degrees in the Upstate and in the mid 80s in Western North Carolina. While the humidity won't make it feel as tropical as it felt earlier this week, we won't completely dry out today. So it will still feel muggy, even if it's not quite as oppressive.
Through the remainder of the week we'll quiet down and cool off a bit. It will be mostly sunny and dry across the Upstate, while the Mountains could pick up an isolated shower or storm late Thursday and Friday. End-of-week highs will be slightly below-normal, but won't be cool by any means.
An early preview of the Father's Day forecast shows good news for dads! We'll be dry and sunny across the area - meaning if there are golf or pool plans for your dad, the weather will cooperate! Highs will range from the upper 70s to low 80s area-wide.
