GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The National Weather Service has the rip current risk for Monday as moderate for all beaches except for Shackleford Banks, where there is a low risk.

Smoke from the Hyde County fire also continued Sunday, and rain expected later in the day Monday into Tuesday should help. That rain will be associated with a cold front that will drop south of the area Tuesday. Ahead of it expect another hot and more humid day Monday, with highs near 90 and heat index levels upper 90s. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely after 3-4pm Monday, continuing Monday night. Model forecasts indicate as much as an inch or more of rain could fall.

Unsettled weather will continue most of the day Tuesday, with the break from the heat expected both Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by a return of hot but dry weather Thursday through Saturday.
