More Records Set Tuesday

Tuesday's high of 99 at RDU broke yet another record. The old record high for September 11 was 97 set in 1983. Tuesday also made for the 75th day this year that the temperature has reached 90 or above at RDU. Prior to this year, the most number of 90 degree days in a year was 72 days in 1953.

Here's a look at other high temperatures around the area from Tuesday --
  • Erwin: 100
  • Fayetteville: 99
  • Smithfield: 99
  • Southern Pines: 99
  • Goldsboro: 98
  • Laurinburg-Maxton: 98
  • Chapel Hill: 97
  • Louisburg: 97
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 97
  • Lumberton: 99
  • Henderson-Oxford: 93

Luckily, Tuesday should be the last day we have to talk about 90 degree temperatures for a while. Hopefully, it was the last time for the rest of the year. Somewhat cooler temperatures have arrived today with highs expected in the mid 80s. Now that temperatures aren't so hot, the next thing we need is rain. That should be on the way for Friday.
