Wednesday should begin a three-day streak of temperatures in the 70s in the Charlotte area.

All sunshine is expected Wednesday with a high of 74.

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement warning of increased fire danger Wednesday. That’s due to low relative humidity, expected gusty winds and low fuel moisture.

Relative humidity is expected to fall into the upper teens and 20s by afternoon. Southwest winds of 10 to 20 mph also are on the way.

Thursday should be mostly sunny with a high of 76.

Showers are likely Thursday night and early Friday, although sunshine should return Friday with a forecast high of 72, according to the National Weather Service in Greer, S.C.

Saturday should be sunny with a high of 69, while Sunday could turn partly cloudy with a similar high.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely Monday with an expected high near 70.

Tuesday should be sunny with a high of 67.
