Here it is... October... and it feels more like August. After a record breaking summer, the heat will continue to set records the first of this week. The latest a 90 degree or above temperature has been recorded in the year at RDU is on October 7. We'll break that record both today and Tuesday. We'll also set record highs the next few days.
Here are the records to watch at RDU --
Monday -- 87 in 1990
Tuesday -- 88 in 1990
Wednesday -- 86 in 1997
Highs will likely top out in the low to mid 90s both Monday and Tuesday with the mid 80s possible on Wednesday.
By the way, records have been kept at RDU since 1944.
