Heat Rising a Bit

We're not expecting a drastic increase in heat during the early part of this week, but expect highs near 90 for Upstate towns with low-middle 80s in Western NC. 

Along with the added afternoon warmth, expect a slight increase in humidity.  This increase may be just enough to add a few more PM storms into the mix during the afternoons on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

We're also watching the topics as a new tropical depression has formed just off the coast of Africa.  Since the system is so far away from out coastlines, there's no cause for concern as of yet.

    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.
