GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Hot and humid conditions will hang on for Friday, but we’ll finally get a break over the weekend!

Partly to mostly sunny skies will continue into early this afternoon, ahead of another round of scattered thunderstorms associated with a cold front. Like Thursday, these storms could be severe, with more concerns for damaging winds and large hail. Keep an eye to the sky and be ready to seek shelter if storms head your way!

Highs today will top the 90s one more time, with low 90s across the mountains, and middle to upper 90s upstate. With the humidity, heat indices will climb to anywhere from 95°-105°. Hang in there for one more day, because the weekend is set to feel a whole lot better!

Storms will wrap up early this evening, with partly cloudy skies taking over from there. Lows will dip to the mid 60s to low 70s, with muggy conditions holding on through the overnight period.

Saturday’s the day where we get the comfortable turn we’ve been waiting for! Behind today’s cold front, a milder and drier air mass will spill in across the Carolinas. Highs that spent most of this week well into the 90s will mostly hover in the 80 to around 90 on Saturday, with a refreshing drop in the humidity. We’ll even keep that going for Juneteenth and Father’s Day celebrations on Sunday, with highs regionwide staying in the 80s. Expect mostly sunny skies all weekend long!

Don’t get too used to the more comfortable air, though. The heat will build again next week!
