Heat Wave Returning To NC This Week

Forecasters say the heat wave gripping the northeast U.S. is poised to move south into North Carolina this week.

Several places across the state enjoyed record or near-record lows in the 50s and 60s at the start of the Independence Day holiday weekend. But the high pressure system that brought the cool weather has moved east, bringing heat and humidity back.

By Wednesday, highs should be approaching 100 across much of the state, with areas in the mountains around 90.

The humidity will be rising, making it feel several degrees hotter.

It already has been a warm summer in North Carolina. Raleigh and the Triad reported their hottest June in a number of decades.

    I still think that Obama is saying this is global warming because he is a communist! You can't convince me otherwise!
