A major heat wave continues across Eastern North Carolina as record highs were set on Thursday. There is little relief expected through the weekend as some locations could see 100 degrees. A massive ridge of high pressure is sitting on top of the area keeping temperatures and humidity on the high side. This combination will likely lead to a Heat Advisory for much of the area on Friday afternoon. Record highs across the area on Thursday included the following:
New Bern - 96 (previous record high was 93 in 1993)
Jacksonville - 97 (previous record high was 93 in 2001)
Kinston - 97 (previous record high was 95 in 1975)
Greenville - 98 (previous record high was 94 in 1936)
Kenansville - 97 (previous record high was 93 in 2001)
