The heat and humidity that we felt today will stick around (literally!) for the end of the weekend, with Sunday also bringing the chance of another round of PM storms.
Sunday will start off quiet with temps in the 60s (Mountains) and 70s (Upstate). It will be very muggy again through the day - and afternoon highs will be similar to today's temperatures. Upstate highs will reach the low 90s, while Mountain highs will make it into the mid 80s.
I think we'll see a little better chance for scattered storms tomorrow afternoon in the Upstate, but the Mountains will likely have a few hit-or-miss storms develop as well. The main storm threats will be torrential rain and lots of lightning, but a stronger storm will have the potential to bring some gusty winds or hail.
We'll quiet down late Sunday with a calmer start to the day Monday. However, a cold front will bring another round of PM storms, so we'll need to keep an eye to the sky again on Monday. Highs to start the week will be hot - ranging from the upper 80s to the mid 90s. Behind the front, we'll fall back to normal (upper 80s at GSP, low 80s in AVL) on Tuesday.
Sunshine will settle in for the remainder of the week, and temperatures will climb as we get to Thursday and Friday. By the end of the week, the Upstate could be approaching triple digits on thermometers!
Tropical Storm Debby has formed in the Gulf of Mexico, and at latest update has sustained winds of 50 mph. Tropical Storm Warnings have been posted along the coast of Louisiana, but there's still plenty of model uncertainty when looking at Debby's projected path. The Euro takes the storm westward to Texas, bringing that state some much-needed heavy rainfall by mid-week. On the other hand, the GFS moves Debby northeastward over Florida before staying off the southeast coast. To get the latest updates from the National Hurricane Center on Debby, click here. Andy will be back and will post more updates tomorrow, too.
