Weather Summary:

High heat and humidity won't stick around too much longer. Cooler temps are on the way heading into the weekend and next week.

In the meantime, warm air continues to hold a grip over North Carolina. A cold front is not far to the north, and will begin to sag southward as we head into the weekend. This will be enough to touch off scattered storms at times overnight tonight, and well into the day on Saturday. Be ready for storms at pretty much anytime.

The front will make its way through the Triad during the day Saturday. Behind it, temperatures and humidity will drop drastically. Sunday will see much cooler weather with highs only right around 80. Clouds will remain, with some clearing possible Sunday afternoon.

Clearer skies will pave the way for a beautiful start to next week. Sunshine and low humidity with high temperatures in the low 80's and mid 80's through midweek.

It's worth mentioning that we're closely monitoring what could become the third named tropical system of the season. It hasn't formed yet, but may be tracking off the East Coast early next week. Stay tuned.

Our normal high is 86, and our normal low is 68.
