NC WEATHER: Hot and humid before a cooler weekend

Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Hot weather will rule the next two days before some cooler air moves in for next week.

Yesterday, the Triangle finally made it to 90 for only the second time this August.  Today, everyone will see low to middle 90s with hot and humid conditions expected.  With the humidity factored in, the heat index could reach triple digits.  Skies will be partly sunny.

Tonight will be partly cloudy with just a slight risk of a shower or storm.  The overnight low will be a muggy 72.

Friday will still be hot and humid with highs back in the lower to middle 90s.  There could be an afternoon or evening isolated storm.  Otherwise it will be partly sunny once again.

Saturday could see a few showers and storms around but highs should drop into the upper 80s with more clouds around.

By Sunday, clouds will give way to some sun and our flow will switch to the northeast which will bring in cooler temperatures.  So with clearing skies look for highs around 83 on Sunday.

Monday through Wednesday are looking nice, with mostly to partly sunny skies and highs in the lower to middle 80s as high pressure to our northeast will continue to dominate.
