Greenville hit 90 degrees for the first time in 2013 Wednesday, so we asked people about their tricks to stay cool and protected from the sun.
"I've just been skating trying to get a nice breeze," said Chris Sullivan
"Sunscreen and water," said Britni Broda
"The pool. That's the only smart way to do it," said Landon Jarman
Health experts say drink lots of water and use sunscreen on hot days, and remember extreme heat can take a toll on the very young and elderly.
Hot air will move into eastern Carolina on Wednesday. Afternoon highs will reach the lower to middle 90s inland and lower to middle 80s on the beaches. Skies will remain mostly sunny throughout the day. More heat is expected on Thursday as afternoon highs reach the middle 90s and heat indices that may reach 100°. It should stay dry through Wednesday but a strong cold front will bring some thunderstorms late Thursday into the evening. Cooler and drier air will move into the area Friday through the weekend.
