Soaring Daytime Highs Just Like the Fireworks Next Week

An intense heatwave is on the way for next week with our hottest days coming midweek. Many areas by midweek west of I-85 will be in the mid to upper 90’s with the only exception possibly being in the higher elevations where temperatures in the 80’s to maybe a few localized areas reaching 90 can be expected. A few areas in the western part of our forecast area may reach near 100 degrees in the lower terrain, and areas east of I-85 will likely see temperatures in the upper 90’s to low 100’s with heat indices even higher. Make sure to stay hydrated and pace yourself in this excessive heat, especially while participating in outdoor activities related to our upcoming holiday.
