Hottest day of the year so far....tropics heating up...

>> Monday, August 10, 2009

Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video. In it, I discuss the mini-heat wave we are in, some unsettled weather ahead, and the tropics. Interesting stuff this morning....give it a look....

High temperatures will soar into the mid to upper 90s today, and heat index values will eclipse the 100 degree mark at times this afternoon. This is a day where you need to use caution when spending time outside. Take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water.

An isolated late-day storm is possible, but most spots should stay dry today.

Tomorrow will still be quite hot with mid 90s for highs. A cold front will get closer to our area, and I expect a better chance of some afternoon showers and storms.

Wednesday through the weekend look fairly unsettled with good chances for some showers and storms each day and highs in the 80s.

In the tropics, no classified systems yet, but a couple of tropical waves have emerged off of Africa, and they bear close watching.
