The Bermuda High will anchor itself off the Southeast coast much of the week bringing hot and generally dry conditions. The high will create a hot west to southwesterly flow of air that will take afternoon temperatures into the middle 90s Wednesday through Friday. It will be the hottest siege of weather across eastern Carolina since last summer. Heat indices could top 100 degrees during the middle and latter portion of the week.
The heat will be tempered only briefly by some isolated storms Tuesday through Thursday. An increase in shower and storm activity can be expected by Friday and the weekend. The increased cloud cover and showers will lower temperatures slightly but it will be steamy.
The tropics remain quiet for now. Tropical development is not expected over the next 3 to 5 days and probably beyond.
