Hot And Sticky Conditions Continue Through Labor Day...

Eastern Carolina will be back into a typical late August to early September pattern with the heat and humidity returning through Labor Day. A stray shower or storm is possible this afternoon as a sea breeze front sets up along the coast and gradually pushes inland.

A hot and increasingly muggy conditions can be expected across the area through Tuesday. Highs will reach around 90 degrees both Monday and Tuesday. The high humidity will make it feel like the mid to upper 90s. Rain chances should stay limited to about 20% to 30% until a cold front moves in on Wednesday.


Labor Day: Better chance of afternoon showers, but skies should stay partly sunny. Highs near 90° with southerly winds at 5 to 10 mph.

Monday Night: Partly to mostly clear skies. Lows in the low 70s with southerly winds at 3 to 6 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly to partly sunny with a slight chance of afternoon thunderstorms. Highs in the low 90s with heat index values in the mid to upper 90s. Southerly winds at 5 to 10 mph.
