The heat remains the big story through the week before cooler air arrives for the weekend!
Before a cold front on Friday, temperatures will soar into the 80s each day through Thursday, flirting with 90 degrees on both Wednesday and Thursday.
As that cold front passes through Friday, it will do so with little to no rain chances. This weekend is looking fantastic with highs in the 70s and morning lows in the 50s, with some upper 40s expected by Sunday morning in the mountains.
In the tropics, Hurricane Maria should continue northward while weakening by Wednesday and Thursday, creating some tropical storm force conditions along the NC Outer Banks.
Lee remains a hurricane but will not impact any mainland.
