GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A classic summer pattern of heat, humidity, and scattered storms sets up as we head into the 4th of July weekend.

Returning sun combined with the ongoing heat and humidity will set off a more widespread round of scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Expect warm and humid conditions otherwise, with highs in the low 80s across the mountains and middle to upper 80s upstate. An isolated storm could linger into tonight with partly to mostly cloudy skies and lows in the mid 60s to around 70.

Rinse and repeat for the entirety to the holiday weekend. Expect a mix of sun and clouds Saturday through Independence Day with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing each afternoon. While these will be hit-or-miss storms, there is a greater chance on Sunday that some storms could become severe. Whether you’re headed to the beach or lake, firing up the barbecue, or taking in some fireworks, keep an eye on the sky and be ready to head for shelter if storms head your way.

Next week will bring a similar pattern, with seasonably hot temperatures and more PM showers/storms. Severe threat should remain on the low end, but a few strong storms are possible.
