Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.
The heat continues to build into the Carolinas today, and Piedmont highs will surge into the low to mid 90s. We should see lots of sun for most of the day. Late this afternoon and this evening, we could catch the tail-end of a complex of storms that began the day in Illinois and Ohio. That could lead to a few late day showers or storms, and what storms manage to develop could be severe.
Tomorrow will likely be a few clicks hotter with mid to even some upper 90s around the region. Heat index values will likely eclipse the century mark tomorrow afternoon. As a cold front approaches from the north, we again could see a few late day storms.
Behind that front, the heat begins to break for Father's Day with highs close to 90. Highs Monday through Wednesday look to mainly be in the 80s.
Stay cool the next couple of days. Check on the elderly, children, and those without air conditioning, and remember to have plenty of fresh cold water for the pets.
