    Thursday will be very hot and humid, so be sure to stay hydrated.

    Temperatures will reach the low to mid-90s but since it will be coupled with high humidity, it will feel like 100 degrees.

    Showers and thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon. Some storms may be strong to severe.

    Once the cold front passes, temperatures and humidity levels drop by Friday. Friday through Sunday will offer some relief from the harsh heat as they will be cool and comfortable.

    High temperatures will range from the mid-60s to the low 70s. Unsettled, cool weather will return for Monday.

    Following a rainy, cool Monday, temperatures should climb back into the upper-70s and low 80s.

    We are tracking Florence in the Atlantic. Florence is a major hurricane. The cold front that moves through Thursday should help steer Florence. If Florence and the cold front don’t interact, the entire east coast will need to watch the hurricane closely.
