Another day of record-heat potential

Posted: Updated:

On Monday, record-tying heat pushed into the Upstate, bringing a high of 91°, that tied a record from 1934!  Today, MORE record-tying heat is expected as high pressure keeps the skies clear and the southwest.  This afternoon, the Upstate is expected to reach 92°, which would tie the record from 1977 (and blow our "normal" temperatures in the upper 70s out of the water).  Western NC will be slightly cooler near 86°, which is quite warm compared to the low-70s where they should be. 

Starting Wednesday, temperatures will cool off just a bit.  It'll still be warmer than average, but highs will top out in the low to mid-80s across the western Carolinas.  High pressure sticks around with sunny skies throughout the work week, but a weak front approaches on Friday, bringing a few clouds.  Showers and a passing thunderstorm should hold off until the weekend, and while Sat/Sun won't be total washouts, there will be potential both days for some on & off rain.  By that time, it'll be much needed!  Right now, the Upstate is down 0.9" of rain for the year, and Western NC is down 2.42".
