Summer Heat.... Summer Storms?

Here's a look back at high temperatures from around the region from Thursday:
  • Erwin: 100
  • Goldsboro: 99
  • Henderson-Oxford: 99
  • Southern Pines: 99
  • Chapel Hill: 97
  • Fayetteville: 97
  • Louisburg: 97
  • Raleigh-Durham: 97
  • Smithfield: 97
  • Laurinburg: 95
  • Lumberton: 95
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 95

We expect to see highs back into the mid 90s today and Saturday. Factor in the humidity, and it will feel more like 100. A few afternoon thunderstorms will be possible the next couple of days, but the greatest chance for more widespread storms looks to come on Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of the Carolinas under the slight risk for severe weather on Sunday.

A few of the afternoon storms over the weekend could produce damaging winds and hail. Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina for Weather on the Ones updates through the weekend for the latest.
