Isolated thunderstorms possible again in Charlotte area

Isolated thunderstorms are possible again Wednesday afternoon and evening in the Charlotte region, with lightning and heavy downpours in some areas, according to a hazardous weather outlook report from the National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg.

Otherwise, Wednesday will be mostly sunny with a forecast high of 94 – a bit of a relief from the 98-degree highs Monday and Tuesday.

Highs are expected to drop even further through the rest of the week, to 90 Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 91 Sunday, before climbing to 93 Monday and Tuesday.

The near normal temperatures for late July and expected lower humidity will result from a weak front stalling just south of the region as high pressure builds across the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic.

Humidity and thunderstorm chances will increase Sunday and early next week in advance of another weak front, according to the weather service.
