Hot weather set to return

By Eric Davis - bio |email| facebook

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - After a beautiful long Fourth of July weekend with comfortable temperatures and no rain, hot weather is set to make its return to southeast North Carolina.  Today highs should break through the 90's and we could even see some highs around 100 near I-95 tomorrow. 

A high pressure ridge will ensure: sunny, dry, and hotter weather today and tomorrow.  The core of the heat will stay well to our north where many big cities in the mid Atlantic and northeast will see highs in the upper 90's to near 100.  However low humidity values (by July standards) will mean that heat advisories won't be necessary. 

As the high retrogrades or moves westward and weakens we will see more clouds and higher humidity values late week into the weekend.  Highs should fall back to seasonable levels near 90 and look for isolated afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms to make a return.

    Today, satellites and supercomputers have vastly improved hurricane forecasting and warning. But one of our age's best tools for communicating a hurricane threat, the National Hurricane Center's official “forecast cone," can be misrepresented and is often misunderstood.
