Temperatures again climbed into the 90s Sunday in Raleigh.
Sunday's weather will be almost a repeat of Saturday, partly cloudy, hot and humid, with widely scattered showers and storms possible as night approaches, WRAL meteorologists said.
Some counties are under a thunderstorm warning.
Where storms pop up, they could be accompanied by strong wind gusts and possibly some hail. The heat will linger even after the sun sets. Overnight lows are forecast in the 70s.
Clouds will dominate the day Monday, holding highs in the upper 80s to around 90.
A front will slowly cross central North Carolina Monday, bringing the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms by afternoon. The outlook for the rest of the work week is similar – days in the low 90s, nights in the 70s, and the chance for afternoon storms each day.
