GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The big story this weekend will be the heat! Highs will approach 100, with a heat index over 100. No major relief in sight.

Despite the passage of a cold front, our temperatures will actually do the opposite this weekend, heating up to their hottest levels of the week! Saturday will see plentiful sunshine, with just the Upstate facing the possibility of a shower or thunderstorm again. Highs will climb to the low 90s in the mountains, and mid 90s across the Upstate and NE Georgia. Add in the lingering humidity, and the heat index in the hottest areas will close in on 100 degrees at times!

Sunday will be a repeat, minus the threat of any storms. Hot and humid again with highs in the low 90s for the mountains, and upper 90s upstate. Add about 5 degrees for the real feel. Stay cool and hydrated if you’re headed outdoors this weekend, and remember your sunscreen!

Next week our storm chances will increase by Tuesday and Wednesday, but no washouts expected.

The tropics remain quiet across the Atlantic basin, with no development expected within the next 48 hours.
