Heat Advisories Return Thursday

Thursday will be another hot one in Eastern Carolina as dangerous heat index values are expected to return.

There is a heat advisory from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for Pitt, Beaufort, Lenoir, Martin, Craven, Carteret, Onslow, Greene, Dare, Pamlico, Washington, Tyrrell, and mainland Hyde counties.

The combination of temperatures in the middle to upper 90s and high humidity will produce heat index values of between 105 and 109 degrees.

Those outside for long periods of time should drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors.

    no, actually I am 50 and married so while it is hot outside I don't think I am actually "hot". LOL. Yes, I think I enjoy my boat more in the fall and spring. . .I have finally reached a point in my life where I just don't care for all the hot weather.

    well, I am staying inside the house with my a/c running and some good movies on telelvision. I do not intend to even take my cabin cruiser out today on the water or even sit by my pool. . .it's just too hot out. My cleaning lady is here this morning and I don't intend to do anything today. Especially outside. Oh, the guy favors my lawn guy. Wonder if it is him?
