Into Monday, we could have some sunshine during the morning hours for some but during the afternoon, skies will turn generally cloudy with more showers and thunderstorms expected. Locally heavy rainfall will be the main threat.

Highs are expected to range from the upper 70s and lower 80s in the mountains to the mid and upper 80s to the lower 90s east of the Blue Ridge.

On Tuesday, a few showers and thunderstorms may still be possible, but most are expected to remain dry. Highs return to the 80s in the mountains and the lower 90s in the east.

Heat really builds in starting on Wednesday as dry conditions are expected, though it will be humid with highs approaching the upper 80s in the mountains and the lower and middle 90s elsewhere.

A few storms are possible for Thursday with highs comparable to Wednesday’s.

The rest of the week and into next weekend currently look largely dry. Hot temperatures and increased humidity may see a pop up shower or storm possible with highs in the mid and upper 80s in the mountains to the mid and upper 90s in the east.

The tropics are quiet as no activity is expected in the Atlantic basin in the next five days.
