More heat today...tropical season begins...

>> Wednesday, June 01, 2011

First off, some select highs from yesterday....

Erwin: 100
Washington: 99
Cherry Point: 98
Charlotte: 95
Greensboro: 94
Raleigh: 94

Expect similar highs today compared to yesterday....maybe even a degree or so warmer in a few spots....pretty stifling heat. Please use lots of caution when outside today.

A weak cold front is dropping our way, and I still expect a few storms to fire late this afternoon into this evening. While most spots will likely remain dry, the storms that do form could produce lots of lightning as well as the chance of some damaging winds and hail.

Southern parts of NC and much of SC will continue to see a chance of a few PM storms the rest of the week with highs remain pretty hot overall. See the video for details on some model uncertainty next week.


Today marks the official beginning of tropical season in the Atlantic Basin. Right on cue, there is a disturbance a few hundred miles off of the Carolina coast, but the overall chances of it developing into an classified system are remote. See the video for details. And remember, we have now cranked up our Tropical Updates on News 14 Carolina t :21 and :51 past the hour.
