Temperatures will climb quickly today and top out in the upper 80’s this afternoon under mostly clear skies.  It will feel like the low 90’s.

Due to the heat and high humidity it will look and feel like the 90's the next few days, just like this gif. h/t tenor

Tomorrow and Saturday will also reach the upper 80’s and feel even hotter, but they will also feature more afternoon clouds and a low chance for a stray shower or storm.

Nights and mornings will not offer much relief either over the next several days with lows in the low 70’s and patchy fog.

While we are having warm, but quiet weather the rest of this week, Hurricane Florence will make landfall and then move very slowly through the Carolinas and/or Georgia dumping rain.

By Sunday, Florence will be much weaker.  It is currently forecast to move northwest in the general direction of our region.

The latest guidance is that the remnants of Florence will bring enhanced moisture (more rain) to our region on Monday. h/t pivotalwx GEFS

This will give us better rain chances for Sunday and Monday while the highs stay in the tropical low 80’s.

That’s all I have for today.  Follow @wxornotbg for the latest updates.
