It's going to start to feel a lot more like July. Temperatures will warm back into the 90s this week at heat and humidity pump their way into the Carolinas. We won't see as many thunderstorms this week -- with a much lower chance for pop up storms each day.
A warm front lifted north of the Triad today, putting us into a warm and humid air mass. We also have a weak area of low pressure swinging through from our west tonight. Isolated storms are a possibility through the late afternoon and evening hours across the Piedmont tonight, but they shouldn't turn severe.
High pressure will build in for Tuesday, and this will increase our chances of getting very warm and muggy. Expect temperatures to really build tomorrow afternoon, returning to the 90s for the first time in several days. With high pressure taking control we'll also see a much lower threat for afternoon thunderstorms.
Once we get warm, we'll likely stay there for several days. Highs in the 90s are likely each day this week, with a typical July Heat Wave taking control for much of the week.
The normal low is 69, and the normal high is 88.
