Can you believe today is the last day of June? The year is half over! Many people are gearing up for an extended weekend with the 4th of July coming up Tuesday, and its shaping up to be a typical summer weekend in North Carolina. Temperatures and the humidity will increase slightly for Saturday and Sunday. Highs will likely reach the low to mid 90s. When you factor in the humidity, it will feel more like the upper 90s or even as hot as 100.
Rain chances will be slim to none the next couple of days. There is a very small chance that an isolated afternoon shower could pop up Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Since the chance is so small, we are pretty safe to say it will just be partly cloudy and hot. Scattered afternoon storms return to our outlook by Tuesday.
If you have travel plans across the state this weekend, weather should not be a problem for you. Highs will reach the mid 80s in the mountains and the upper 80s to near 90 along the coast.
If you are staying at home, it should be a great weekend to check out 4th of July events around the region. Click the following link for --
