Wednesday: We remain on the muggy and hot side of the cold front. Highs climb to the upper 80s to low 90s in the Piedmont. We should see a bit more sunshine than previous days, and the storm chances look slightly lower.

Thursday: Expect Thursday to mark the warmest day of the week and quite possibly the stormiest as the front moves through. Highs reach the lower  90s. It will feel more like 100° with the humidity. Storms may be slow-moving with downpours.

Friday - Saturday - Sunday: A cold front will deliver a much deserved change in the typical summertime pattern. Much cooler and drier air will arrive by the end of the week and stick around for the upcoming weekend. The humidity levels will drop significantly and afternoon highs will stay below normal in the middle 80s.
