428 AM EDT Sat Jul 23 2016
Partly cloudy skies prevailed into Friday night as most showers
and storms faded after sunset. Patchy fog developed across many of
the valleys early Saturday morning and was the most widespread
where earlier showers had occurred. Pre-dawn temperatures were on
the warm side with readings mostly in the upper 60s to lower 70s,
except for a few lower 60s in the valleys.
Strong high pressure aloft will continue to build east into the
region resulting in high heat and humidity through the weekend.
Heat index valleys between 100 and 105 degrees could occur east of
the mountains into Sunday afternoon. An isolated shower or storm
will be possible mainly across the mountains over the weekend
otherwise dry weather is expected. Highs will range from 85 to 90
across the mountains, to the mid and upper 90s in the Piedmont.
