OUTLOOK

Hot and dry high pressure extends into the region through Friday allowing heat indices to climb near or into the low 100s outside the mountains. Friday a cold front will approach the area gradually sinking south across the Carolinas and northern Georgia throughout the day. This front is expected to track south of the forecast area Saturday before lifting north again into the area Sunday. This frontal boundary will keep shower and thunderstorm chances around. Early next week another cold front brings cooler weather along with more shower and thunderstorm chances.
