(WVUE) - The area is starting off warmer and muggier this morning.

Temperatures will run above normal through the rest of the week with most areas reaching the mid to upper 80s and low 90s in the afternoons. A couple of spots could reach near records.

Dew points are expected to drop slightly by tomorrow which will allow us to feel slightly less humid, but the real differences won't arrive until Saturday. Significantly drier air and potentially cooler air will move in by Sunday.

Hurricane Matthew remains a Category 4 hurricane. The entire Bahamas will be affected by this storm today, and impacts for Florida could begin tomorrow.

Additional problems are possible for the Carolinas by this weekend. The storm is expected to be a major hurricane when it affects the US Coastline.

Tropical Storm Nicole also formed in the Atlantic well east of Matthew but is expected to remain at sea.
