First Alert Weather Day: Scorching heat returns Wednesday

Highs in the upper 90s come with elevated humidity

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Wednesday will be a First Alert Weather Day due to dangerous heat. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 90s across many communities, and with humidity staying creeping back upward, our heat index will likely range between 100 to 110°. To put this into perspective, when the heat index hits 105° to 110° for several consecutive hours, the National Weather Service issues a Heat Advisory. Our current expected range would put most in the East under a possible heat advisory Wednesday afternoon.

A few sea breeze storms developing later in the day near the coast may bring some relief for a few spots, but most areas will miss any showers. A frontal boundary will approach Thursday afternoon, bringing more clouds and a better chance of showers and storms along with a little dip in the heat.

Wednesday will be a First Alert Weather Day due to dangerous heat and humidity levels.
