— Mild, pleasant weather will disappear, and heat and humidity take its place in North Carolina just in time for the official start of summer this week.

"It's going to be more summer-like as we head on through what will end up being the first week of summer," WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said.

The mercury will rise into the mid 80s Monday, flirt with the 90-degree mark on Tuesday and shoot high above it on Wednesday, the first official day of summer. Temperatures are predicted to stay above 90 degrees for the rest of the week.

"We'll be quite humid by the time we get to Wednesday and Thursday especially," Moss said.

Rain, though, will mostly stay away. There is a slim chance of isolated storms in the afternoon Monday and Tuesday. Southeast Radar Weather maps and cams

"What we're looking at today and tomorrow is just a few stray showers," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

The rain chances dry up by mid-week.

"It'll be muggy and warm, but our chance of showers is pretty slim," Gardner said.

    I wish the whole summer could be like the weather was this past weekend. I hate the heat and humidity! Bring on autumn!

    americaneel-- LOL!! I agree 100%! Hey, I'm enjoying this weather that seems to be "exclusive" to NC. Don't want to go over the border where it seems to be frigid!

    Cool days are really over. Keep cool during these up coming hot hot days. Drink plenty of water.

    hdinfo...You are correct, sorry. I meant to say KMA. See if you can figure that one out.

    Hd info - it doesn't say anywhere that it is exclusive to "NC ONLY"

  • Ambygirl Jun 18, 2012

    hdinfo please tell us where in this article it states this weather patter is exclusive to NC. Just because the title states NC is heating up for the summer doesn't imply anything of the sort. This article is just about weather in our state, not that the pattern itself is exclusive to NC. Americanneel, you were right. hdinfo, you're the one being analretentive.

    "Weather is exclusive to NC" Michael marett forecast it to be cooler on the other side.

    NC Heating up for summer. Cause narrowed down to Golo flame posts. No end in sight. Take shelter under a rock. You'll find plenty of company there...

    Americananal, duhh:
    The article very clearly implies that this weather pattern is exclusive to only NC. If you don't understand that, I suggest perhaps you re-read the headline, if you can indeed read something that long, as many times as needed.
    Now, shall I point out the "fail" (as you put it) in your statement... GENERAL national/world news... So to you, GENERAL national/world news should only be talked about if it is not weather? Would not a simple use of the term "region" make the article make much more sense? And to further point out that you are incorrect in stating it is only for NC weather, WRAL commonly lists forecasts for the Southern VA area, mostly around Kerr lake. You indeed should apply to be a "modern day want-to-be journalist" - also known as TV reporter / web editor for WRAL, since the word "fail" by itself does not even make grammatical sense in the context you used it. Perhaps you actually meant, "Failure"?
