Most of the region was dry yesterday and last night. However, there was a fairly narrow corridor near the NC/SC border area that saw a few isolated showers and storms, and it is in that same region where a few isolated storms could fire again today. Most spots, though, will again be dry, and highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 with continued slightly lower humidity levels.
It will be getting a bit hotter and muggier over the weekend. Tomorrow will feature lowers 90s for highs, and highs by Father's Day will warm into the mid 90s in many spots. It will also be getting muggier, and due to that fact, a few isolated storms are possible anywhere across the region. However, the chance of rain in any one spot remains small.
Next week looks hot and muggy with lots of mid 90s for highs and the daily chance of at least a few PM storms. The heat might try to break just a but toward the end of the week.
We still have our tropical wave, which is bringing unsettled weather to the Lesser Antilles today. However, upper level winds remain hostile, and development is not likely.
