GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - We are calling for a First Alert Weather Day today and Thursday for an increased risk of severe weather.

HEAT ADVISORY in effect from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM Wednesday for the following counties: ABBEVILLE, ELBERT, GREENWOOD.

Make sure you have the new FOX Carolina First Alert Weather app to get severe weather alerts sent directly to your phone.

Today and Thursday will be the hottest and most humid days of the week, which in turn will help to fuel a greater chance of strong to severe thunderstorms. Expect scattered storms through tonight, with damaging wind as the primary threat.

A leftover shower or thunderstorm will be possible overnight, but the overwhelming majority of the activity will wrap up by 11:00 PM. Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies otherwise, with lows headed into the upper 60s and low 70s.

Another round of strong to severe storms is possible on Thursday, with the day playing out just like Wednesday. Expect more hot and humid conditions too, with highs again ranging from the upper 80 to mid 90s, and heat indices topping 100° in many parts of the upstate.

We’ll stay in that typical July pattern into the weekend, with spotty storms and highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Severe threat should be much less into Friday and Saturday, then we’ll get a nice cool-down by Sunday! Highs will go from the mid 90s to the mid 80s with slightly less humidity!
