GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Temperatures remain comfortable into Saturday, then begin to soar to dangerously hot levels next week. Other than a slight chance for rain Saturday, our forecast is looking dry.

The weekend continues the beautiful weather overall. Plenty of sun expected for Saturday, with a low chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm later in the afternoon and early-evening. Highs will hold the level in the low to mid 80s before bumping to the mid 80s to around 90 on Sunday.

Next week is when hit our hottest weather of the year so far! A massive ridge of high pressure settling over the eastern United States will keep thunderstorms scarce in the early part of the week before humidity and instability build. Highs will top the middle to upper 80s on Monday in the mountains, and mid 90s upstate, before everyone hits the low to mid 90s into the middle of the week. A run toward the upper 90s is even looking likely for the upstate by Tuesday, so make sure you are prepared for a prolonged stretch of high heat!
