The comfortable temperatures and humidity we had in central North Carolina this weekend will come to an end this weekend and next week. Temperatures will soar into the 90s next week along with higher humidity could leave us with a heat index near 100 a few days.
Friday was a warmer day, but still comfortable as highs returned to the 80s. The high in the Triangle was 83 while Fayetteville made it up to 89. The normal high this time of year is 86 and we will be above that for the next seven days.
High pressure will build in for the weekend and hang around next week. This will bring in hot and mainly dry weather into next week. Highs in the 90s with higher humidity will be the rule. There will be only a slight chance of a PM shower or storm next Wednesday. By Thursday a cold front will finally approach central North Carolina and a shower and storm will be possible.
