Triangle to stay hot and humid for several days
Posted August 19
Raleigh, N.C. — After a hot and humid day in the Triangle, sunny skies are in Sunday's forecast for another hot day.
"Tomorrow will be sunny, and it will be hot with temperatures in the low to mid 90s," WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth said.
Wilmoth said to expect a dry end to the weekend.
For Monday’s solar eclipse, temperatures will be in the low 90s and conditions will be partly to mostly sunny for viewing.
“Around eclipse time there could be some high clouds out there,” Wilmoth said. "Some clouds are going to start to pop up, and a couple of showers could pop up as well."
"We don't have a tropical system, and we don't have a frontal system that could bring a large amount of rain," she said.
Wilmoth said to expect hit and miss showers over the course of the day.
Temperatures will remain in the 90s for the majority of the week before dropping back into the mid-80s on Thursday and Friday.
"Our rain chances are low for this week," Wilmoth said. "A cold front will get our temperatures down into the 80s next weekend."
