GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - As expected, scattered strong to severe storms formed Sunday afternoon and evening. Several reports of damage from storm winds came in from Grifton, Fort Barnwell, and Belhaven. Fog will form over the wet ground late tonight. After sunrise, the fog will burn away.

Heat will return in full as we start the work week. A westerly flow on Monday will push our air temps into the mid 90s. The heat index will approach 105 by late afternoon. Rain chances will be around 20% Monday and Tuesday due to the heat and humidity. A back door cold front will move in late Tuesday and may ease the heat a little by Wednesday and Thursday.

A Heat Advisory is in effect for Halifax, Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson, and Wayne Counties from Noon until 8pm on Monday. An Excessive Heat Watch is in effect for areas from Raleigh to Fayetteville Monday as well. Tuesday is likely to be our hottest day with advisories or warnings for heat covering most of Eastern NC expected.
