Dangerous heat continues....

>> Friday, July 22, 2011

Some select highs from yesterday:

Fayetteville: 103
Raleigh: 102
Laurinburg: 101
Wilmington: 100
Burlington: 99
Charlotte: 97
Greensboro: 96

Highs today will head up into the 97-100 degree range for the I-85 corridor and in the 99-104 range when you get closer to I-95, the Sandhills, and the coastal Plain. Heat index values will run from 105-110 for the I-85 areas and over 110 at times farther east.

Overall, the heat continues this weekend with highs staying in the upper side of the 90s and continued muggy conditions.

Isolated storms will be with us today and tomorrow with a little better coverage for Monday and Tuesday.

The heat will slightly back down for the first half of next week, but I still anticipate another wave of heat later next week and the following weekend.

Stay cool!

Matthew, the temperature gage for my zipcode today has reached 100 for NE Charlotte, but I think we have decided that reads a tad on the hot side. I'm guessing overall Charlotte has done 97-98 today. My sister in Raleigh said it was suppose to get close to 103. That's too hot.

Yep, RDU was 103....CLT airport officially 98. A little toasty.
