"For us, it's going to be hot in the Triangle over the next few days," Maze said. "You can expect some rain as well."

Thursday will be partly sunny with hit-and-miss storms. But Maze said storms will be fewer and farther between than on Wednesday.

Highs will stay in the lower 90s with high humidity.

Friday and Saturday will continue the trend of stormy, humid days with seasonably hot temperatures in the 90s.
