Above average temperatures expected in the Midlands

Columbia (WACH) â?? Get ready for the heat today! Temperatures will be above normal across the Midland with sunny skies.

The Heat Is On

Weâ??re expecting above normal temperatures across the Midlands today. With high pressure overhead and dry air moving in, weâ??ll see clear skies for our Wednesday. Although 96 for a high is not ideal, there is a small silver lining today. The dry air that we have moving in will help keep the humidity down. What does that mean? Well, we wonâ??t see much of a heat index today and while 96 is still hot, it is a lot better than feeling like itâ??s over 100 degrees outside.

When Will The Heat End?

Our next front arrives later this week. By Friday the front will be upon us and our rain chances will increase. While the front stays stalled overhead through the weekend, our rain chances will stay increased. The cloud coverage and rain will help keep our temperatures below normal, down in the 80â??s.
