Lower 90's arrive Wednesday

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Today: Sun & Clouds. Few PM Storms. High 88.

Tonight: Few Evening Storms. Partly Cloudy. Low 72

Wednesday: Partly Cloudy. Low Storm Chance. High 92.

Thursday: Partly Cloudy. Low Storm Chance. High 93.

Friday: Partly Cloudy. Isolated Storms. High 90.

WEATHER SUMMARY:

A stationary front within our vicinity can lead to PM showers and storms this afternoon. The storms that occur later today are not expected to become severe as in the case of Monday. Wednesday and Thursday will be drier and hotter with high pressure building in over the mid-Atlantic. Heat indices in some locations across the Triad will reach up to 100. Friday, a weak cold front will approach the Carolinas and lead to shower/storm coverage Friday afternoon/evening through Saturday. The boundary sits around through start of next week which could keep showers/storms in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Fortunately, this front will lead to a dip in dew points and allow for more comfortable temperatures heading out the door.

Across much of the nation, a ridge will build and lead to a stretch of oppressive heat in the Central US. Heat advisories and excessive heat watches and warnings have been issued through portions of the Pacific Northwest, Central US and Southeast. 

The normal high is 88, and the normal low is 70.
