Dry Saturday; Storms possible Sunday

Cooler, wetter weather on the way next week.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Today: Partly Cloudy. Low Storm Chance. Hazy Smoke Possible. High 93.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Getting Less Humid. Low 69.

Saturday: Partly Cloudy.  Bit Less Humid. High 87.

Sunday: Scattered Rain and Storms. High 84.

Monday: Partly Cloudy. Storm Possible. High 86. 

Tuesday: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers and Storms Likely. High 81. 

WEATHER SUMMARY:

Thursday was our hottest day of the year so far, topping out at 95°. We'll sweat it out one more day in the 90s, today, but then our big deal heat takes a break for a while. Mostly sunny and hot this afternoon, with a low chance of a stray shower or pop-up storm. You also may notice some smoke/haze this afternoon from western wildfires.

High-pressure overhead is pumping in our winds from the west and bringing our heat in from the middle of the country. To the north, a cold front that is marching south will cross North Carolina today and bring some relief from the high heat and humidity by Saturday.

Saturday will be the pick of the weekend, staying dry with slightly cooler and less humid air. After being stuck in the 90s with staunch humidity for several days, the difference will be noticeable. 

On Sunday, a push of moisture will start to slide our way from the west. This will increase the threat of showers and possibly a few storms. With more clouds and more of a rain chance temperatures will be a bit cooler. This wet weather pattern will stick around next week with highs around 80 most days.

 The normal high is 88, and the normal low is 69.
