Hot Thursday, but cooler temps on the way

Posted August 4, 2010

— Hot and humid weather will continue Thursday, but cooler temperatures are on the way this weekend, according to WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson.

"It's something to look forward to," he said.

Heat advisories have been issued for more than 25 North Carolina counties from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

Wednesday night will be partly cloudy with a slight chance of a thundershower.

Thursday will be partly cloudy, breezy and hotter with a slim chance of afternoon storms. Highs will be in the upper 90s to 100 degrees. Heat index values should range between 105 to 110 degrees.

"This should be the hottest day of this little hot spell," Johnson said.

A cold front approaches Friday bringing a greater chance of storms and breaking the hot spell by the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the high 80s to low 90s.

    Yes, it may be hot there (I live in NC) however, I'm down in TX visiting family and I would give ANYTHING to have just 96-98 degree weather right now...we are dealing with 101-108 degree temps. :)
