Jim’s First Alert Forecast: Holiday heat wave continues Monday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – The heat and humidity will continue to back eastern NC on Monday. With the “feels like” temps nearing 107°, all of Eastern NC will once again be under a Heat Advisory from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.

Please be sure to take extra precautions with some of these safety tips to help you deal with hot temperatures:

-Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water.

-Limit your time outside or take “A.C. breaks” throughout your day.

-Wear either light clothing and/or light colored apparel.

-Check-up on older relatives and neighbors.

-Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.

If you plan on heading to the coast over the next few days, please be aware of the MODERATE risk for rip currents. In fact, it’s being reported that on Saturday there were 88-rescues due to rip currents just from Carolina Beach through Myrtle Beach so please be safe. You may want to go to the beach with a buddy so you both can keep an eye on each other.

It’s also important to mention that Eastern Carolina is currently under a threat for severe weather for Monday starting around 5 p.m. through 11 p.m. Then again, on Tuesday starting around 4:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. These strong to severe storms could bring rumbles of thunder, lightning and the main threats of damaging wind gusts and large hail.



Some of these storms may impact a few firework displays across Eastern Carolina so we will be closely monitoring the situation on Tuesday night.
