The calm before the warm

/ May 23, 2019 at 7:53 AM

Today is the “calm before the warm” as the pattern begins to kick into place for a significant, long-duration heat wave starting tomorrow. (More on that later today.) A shower or storm can’t be ruled out early today, but as the ridge builds, clouds will decrease. The vast majority of us remain bone dry. Temperatures will range from the upper 80s in the Charleston metro to the low 90s closer to I-95.
