Rowan weather: Stuck in a pattern

It doesn’t look like there’s going to be any change in the weather for a least a week, which means more heat and humidity, a daily chance of showers and thunderstorms and typical conditions for summer in North Carolina.
Today and Saturday, the air quality improves a bit to code yellow, which is moderate. Some sensitive people may be affected, especially if the index approaches the orange zone. Again, the UV index will be very high, so be sure to protect yourself and your children from the sun.
Today the 30 percent chance of storms will be mainly after 2 p.m. Clouds will increase during the day with a high near 89. Tonight, there’s a 40 percent chance of showers and storms throughout the night and into the early hours of Saturday, with a low around 69.
Saturday will be partly sunny and hot, with a high near 89 and a 30 percent chance of rain, which continues into Saturday night with a low around 67.
Little rain is expected with these showers, but heavy rain, frequent lightning and possible hail could be part of any thunderstorms that develop.
Sunday will be partly sunny again and 86, with just a 20 percent chance of precipitation. Sunday night’s low will be around 67.
Monday, same old thing, 30 percent chance of rain, partly sunny, near 86. Monday night, low around 68, with the same chance of rain.
Guess what? Tuesday is nearly the same, with a 30 percent chance of showers and storms and a high near 88 under mostly sunny skies. Tuesday night, slight chance of storms, low around 69.
And don’t look for change on Wednesday, when it should be mostly sunny, near 89 and with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Wednesday night, look for a low around 68.
Then on Thursday, nothing changes, with a high near 87 and a 30 percent chance of precipitation.
