When it comes to the weather of 2007, two words can sum up the year for North Carolina -- warm and dry. We broke several record highs this summer including tying the all time record high of 105 at RDU. A warm 2007 was the story for the entire U.S. as well. In fact, 2007 will likely go down in the top 10 warmest years on record.
