The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a Heat Advisory, which is in effect from 11 AM this morning to
7 PM EDT this evening.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...105 to 109 degrees.

* TIMING...late this morning through early this evening.

* IMPACTS...The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and
neighbors. Keep pets inside if possible.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible
and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat
should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
emergency, call 9 1 1.

First Alert Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

 

Thursday marks the first official day of summer with the summer solstice (the moment when the direct rays of the sun hit the Tropic of Cancer). But that's all academic! Meteorologically, summer weather has already been occurring in the Cape Fear Region and it's set to continue in your forecast for...

THURSDAY: Hazy and hot sunshine will once-again propel temperatures to 90s and heat index values are likely to spike to 100+ levels. Please continue to be rested, hydrated, and neighborly (that's for people and pets!). Odds for a pop-up heavy storm will grow to 30 to 40% and afternoon and evening hours are favored.

THE LONGER-RANGE: Expect daytime highs near 91 Friday, 93 Saturday, 95 Sunday, 92 Monday, and 88 Tuesday and Wednesday. Nightly lows ought to be consistently in the 70s through the period. Storm chances will operate in the 30 to 40% range Friday and Saturday, 20 to 30% Sunday and Monday, and 10 to 20% for most of the rest of next week.

THE TROPICS: Atlantic Hurricane Season enters its fourth official week and, thankfully, conditions are quiet. New tropical storm development is not likely anywhere in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean itself - through Thursday and Friday.
