Heat and Humidity Along with Storm Chances Today

GREENVILLE, N.C. - Good Wednesday Morning! I'm WNCT 9 First Alert Meteorologist Dontae Jones with your forecast for eastern North Carolina.

THIS MORNING: We are looking at temperatures in the mid to upper 70s this morning with partly to mostly cloudy skies. There are areas of patchy dense fog so you'll want to be careful heading into work and class. We are relatively dry throughout the morning.

THIS AFTERNOON:  This afternoon we'll call for partly to mostly cloudy skies with a 30 to 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. The presence of sunshine will allow for inland temps to soar to about 90 and mid 80s along the coast. The heat index could reach the upper 90s.

TONIGHT: Another tropical night with partly cloudy skies and a slight chance of a stray shower. We'll call for overnight lows in the mid 70s inland and upper 70s along the coast. Again, we could see some areas of patchy fog.

HEAT AND HUMIDITY EVIDENT FOR MID WEEK: Today and tomorrow will feature hot temperatures with uncomfortably high humidity.  Wednesday afternoon highs in the upper 80's to lower 90's will feel even hotter with the heat index values.  There will be a 40 percent chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms.  Winds will become southwesterly around 10 mph, except gusting higher in any thunderstorms that develop.  A cool front will slide into the region on Thursday to increase rain chances and may spark a few stronger storms. This will likely be the more significant chance of strong to severe weather this week.


LOOKING TOWARD THE WEEKEND:   As the front moves through, storm chances will be much lower on Friday.  The front will stall offshore for Saturday and Sunday as the Bermuda high edges closer to the area, helping to keep a chance for some showers and storms in the forecast for the upcoming weekend.

TROPICS:  Tropical Depression Two continues to scoot toward the west-northwest in the central tropical Atlantic Ocean.  The official forecast track from the National Hurricane Center keep T.D. Two very weak as it moves across the the Leeward Islands and the eastern Caribbean Sea by Thursday.  T.D. Two is expected to become a remnant area of tropical low pressure before the weekend.  Thus, at this time, Tropical Depression Two presents no threat to the United States.
