NC WEATHER: Labor Day gets hotter, 90s all week

Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - The hottest temperatures in more than a month are headed to North Carolina on Labor Day and the heat will stick around all week.

Sunday was back into the 90s in central North Carolina for only the sixth time in the month of August for some.  The high in the Triangle was 91 while Fayetteville made it up to 95.  Hotter weather is expected Monday for Labor Day with just small chances of afternoon showers and storms.

Overnight will continue to stay warm and muggy with a small chance of an isolated shower or storm before midnight.  Dry weather with partly cloudy skies is expected otherwise with a Monday morning low down to 71.

Labor Day will be even hotter than Monday with highs reaching into the middle 90s in many areas of central North Carolina.  The heat index will be even higher, topping out near 103 to 105 in the afternoon.  Skies on Monday will be partly cloudy with nothing more than a stray late day shower or thundershower.

The heat and humidity will continue as we head back to work and school on Tuesday; highs will reach toward the middle 90s again.  Heat index temperatures will once again top out near 105.  Skies will be partly sunny and once again nothing more than a stray late day shower or thundershower.

Wednesday and Thursday won't be as hot, but highs will still be in the lower 90s and above normal for this time of year. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy each day with just small chances of afternoon showers and storms. Highs on Wednesday will be around 93 and 92 on Thursday.  This is still above normal, as our normal high temperature is now 86.

Friday will still be hot with highs around 90 and continued small chances of afternoon showers and storms.  Next weekend won't see many changes with highs around 90 and small chance of showers and storms. 

The tropics remain rather quiet as we head into one of the busiest months during the hurricane season.  To this point we have had three named tropical systems, all of which have developed into hurricanes, Arthur, Bertha and Cristobal.
