Skies will remain partly cloudy overnight with lows dropping into the lower 70s across the Upstate and mid to upper 60s in western North Carolina. Patchy fog will likely develop by early morning across the mountain towns with light to calm winds in place.
Wednesday is looking like a scorcher with highs climbing into the mid-90s in the Upstate and lower 90s for western North Carolina. Skies will be partly cloudy with light winds mainly out of the north between three and eight miles per hour.
There is a slight chance of a late afternoon shower or thunderstorm developing across the mountain towns with an even lesser chance of them leaking into the Upstate. Some thunderstorms may have the potential to become severe late in the day. The risk is low, but the main threat from these storms would be large hail and damaging winds.
Tropical Storm Arthur is also going to be making its way north, likely affecting the Charleston and Myrtle Beach areas by Thursday. Look for this storm to bring increased winds and rain for much of the South Carolina coastline.
Back at home, our Fourth of July is still looking pleasant with sunny skies and temperatures right around normal.
