Heat and Humidity Along with Storm Chances on Wednesday

Chief Meteorologist David Sawyer Chief Meteorologist David Sawyer
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Hello! I'm WNCT 9 First Alert Meteorologist David Sawyer with your forecast for eastern North Carolina.

TONIGHT: Expect mostly cloudy skies overnight with a 20 percent chance of a stray shower inland with a 30 percent chance of a shower or thunderstorm for coastal sections. Temperatures will remain warm and very humid in the middle 70's inland and upper 70's along the coast. We could again see some areas of patchy fog.

HEAT AND HUMIDITY EVIDENT FOR MID WEEK: Wednesday and Thursday will feature hot temperatures with uncomfortably high humidity.  Wednesday afternoon highs in the upper 80's to lower 90's will feel even hotter with the heat index values.  There will be a 40 percent chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms.  Winds will become southwesterly around 10 mph, except gusting higher in any thunderstorms that develop.  A cool front will slide into the region on Thursday to increase rain chances and may spark a few stronger storms. This will likely be the more significant chance of strong to severe weather this week.

LOOKING TOWARD THE WEEKEND:   As the front moves through, storm chances will be much lower on Friday.  The front will stall offshore for Saturday and Sunday as the Bermuda high edges closer to the area, helping to keep a chance for some showers and storms in the forecast for the upcoming weekend.

TROPICS:  Tropical Depression Two continues to scoot toward the west-northwest in the central tropical Atlantic Ocean.  The official forecast track from the National Hurricane Center keep T.D. Two very weak as it moves across the the Leeward Islands and the eastern Caribbean Sea by Thursday.  T.D. Two is expected to become a remnant area of tropical low pressure before the weekend.  Thus, at this time, Tropical Depression Two presents no threat to the United States.
