Due to clouds, showers, and storms, the heat will take a break for the next couple of days. Piedmont highs today will range from the mid to upper 80s around the Triad to at most the lower 90s for the CLT and RDU areas. We will see scattered showers and storms today and tonight.
Tomorrow looks unsettled with a good coverage of rain and storms at times. Highs will likely be similar tomorrow to what we will see today.
The heat will spike briefly again Monday with some mid to upper 90s, but with time next week, at least some subtle troughing will try to settle into the eastern US. The result will be a gradually decrease in temps as the week unfolds, especially late-week.
Hispaniola completely tore Emily apart, and it is now a remnant low. It might re-organize a bit, but it looks to stay out to sea and not be a big problem.
