NC WEATHER: A hot and humid Labor Day expected


The last time we were in the mid 90s was the middle of July and this kind of heat will build into the area for this Labor Day and could continue for the next few days.

Today, expect a mix of sun and clouds with a stray late day shower or storm possible.  We'll also be very hot and humid with heat index values in the upper 90s to 100 degrees.  Make sure you stay hydrated today and if you're in the sun, take frequent breaks for time in the shade or air conditioning.

Overnight we'll be mild and muggy, again as lows fall into the low 70s.

The heat and humidity will continue as we head back to work and school on Tuesday; highs will reach toward the middle 90s again.  Heat index temperatures will once again top out near 105.  Skies will be partly sunny and once again nothing more than a stray late day shower or thundershower.

Wednesday and Thursday won't be as hot, but highs will still be in the lower 90s and above normal for this time of year. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy each day with just small chances of afternoon showers and storms. Highs on Wednesday will be around 93 and 92 on Thursday.

Friday will still be hot with highs around 91 and continued small chances of afternoon showers and storms.  Next weekend won't see many changes with highs around 90 and small chance of showers and storms. 

The tropics remain rather quiet as we head into one of the busiest months during the hurricane season.  To this point we have had three named tropical systems, all of which have developed into hurricanes, Arthur, Bertha and Cristobal.
