Monday: We will start the week on another hot and hazy note. Expect more sun than clouds all day with the slim chance for a storm by afternoon to cool things off. Highs will approach the low 90s in the Upstate and middle-upper 80s in Western NC. The tropical storm will increase the humidity factor, but won't really impact any other conditions on Monday other than helping to spark a few more scattered storms with the high humidity. I'll say 30%-40% chance of a brief storm where you live tomorrow which means there's a higher probability of you missing out on some needed rain. The lake levels are obviously low so we'll hope for the best.
I tend to think this tropical system will exit south and east of us without making much of an impact on our weather this week. The National Hurricane Center (NHC track) expects the storm to move northward very slowly into southeast Georgia by Thursday creating a flooding threat south of here. Due to past climatology arguing otherwise, I think Debby will be out of here by then and off the Georgia coast (out in the Atlantic). Stay tuned as the track of the storm could change due to a strange upper-level wind pattern/environment.
Tuesday: The heat will back off a bit, but we'll still have 80s with less humidity on Tuesday which will be a nice, temporary break. We'll have more sunshine than clouds with zero chance for rain.
Wednesday: An upper-level heat ridge will start to take shape to our west and move in our direction. This ridge will cause sinking air and as that air sinks it will compress which causes it to heat up more readily. Highs will once again approach 90 for the Upstate with 80s in the Mountains. That compression heating will worsen by late week.
Late Week: Hotter. Get ready for the hottest temperatures we have seen so far this year.
