Intense summer heat and afternoon storms will be the big weather stories for Wednesday. Highs will get into the mid 90s for the Upstate and upper 80s in the mountains. A few late-day storms will develop, and any storm that forms could pack frequent lightning and gusty winds.
Thursday will be similar to Wednesday, with more uncomfortable heat and humidity and afternoon storms. Highs will rise into the low 90s for the Upstate and mid 80s for the mountains.
This weekend will remain hot, but our storm chances increase for Sunday. Skies will clear next week and a more fall-like feel will return to the Carolinas and Georgia.
