A surge of very hot air is moving over Eastern North Carolina and could take temperatures to 100° or higher on Tuesday. Monday afternoon saw temperatures reach the middle and upper 90s except along the immediate coast. A heat advisory is in effect from 11 am to 7 pm on Tuesday as the combination of temperature and relative humidity will likely make it feel like at least 105°. A cold front moving southeast from the Great Lakes will temper the heat a bit by midweek as Wednesday's should stay in the lower 90s. In addition the front should spark an increase in the number of showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday and Thursday. The end of the week looks seasonably hot with highs near 90°.
