Heat to stick around for several days before rain brings relief

Posted June 11

— Temperatures on Sunday climbed to about 90 degrees in the Triangle and, while warm weather will stick around for several days, WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze said it will not be as intense as originally expected.

While those who spent the day outside Sunday certainly felt the heat, temperatures were actually a few degrees below what was originally forecast. While temperatures will stay in the low to mid 90s for the majority of the week, Maze said relief will come sooner than expected.

"The ridge that was supposed to bake us doesn't look quite as strong, so the temperatures, as we head into the new week, may not be as hot," he said.

Monday and Tuesday are expcted to be dry and sunny throughout the Triangle, but the chance for rain enters the forecast Wednesday and increases as the weekend approaches.

Both Friday and Saturday show a 60 percent chance for rain that could bring relief from the heat.

7-Day Forecast

High temperatures should cool down a bit, reentering the 80s, by the weekend.
