GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Summer begins Wednesday evening, and the temperatures will reflect that change in the seasons.

The summer solstice, when the sun reaches its point farthest north of the equator, also known as the Tropic of Cancer, is scheduled to occur at 7:09 p.m. Wednesday.

FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent said the mercury will climb into the low 90s across the Upstate on Wednesday, with middle 90s expected by the weekend. She said humidity levels will also increase, making the air feel even hotter.

Average temperatures for this time of year are in the upper 80s, Kent said.

Kent said that overnight lows will dip into the upper 60s most nights.

There is only a slight chance of isolated showers or storms for the remainder of the week, Kent said.

The first day of summer is also referred to as the longest day of the year, because it typically contains the most hours of daylight of any day of the year.
