At the height of the storm, thousands of Progress and Duke Energy customers were without power in Durham, Orange and Wake Counties.

"It won't be quite so hot tomorrow, but it will still be humid," said ABC11 Chief Meteorologist Chris Hohmann.

That front will wash out for Thursday, and as that happens, expect more in the way sunshine and the return of hot, hot weather. After being held down in the low 90s tomorrow, high temperatures Thursday will jump to near 100 Thursday which is close to the record for the date of 101 set in 2005. Once the hot weather is here, it is here to stay Friday into Saturday with highs in the upper 90s to near 100.

Each day will be partly sunny, and while it could thunderstorm in a few spots late each day, much of the time will be rain-free.
