Goodbye Summer Heat!

The cool crisp mornings of fall have finally arrived this week! It appears we can finally say goodbye to the summer heat that lasted through much of September. Highs can still reach the 90s in North Carolina in October. However, looking at at forecast for the next week, it is very unlikely that we will see the 90s again this year!

Parts of our state including Raleigh-Durham broke records with the summer heat this year. RDU had the most number of 90 degree or higher days in a year with 91 days of highs 90+.

Here's a look at what is likely the final total of 90 degree and higher days in 2010 from across NC:

  • Lumberton: 101
  • Fayetteville: 100
  • Raleigh-Durham: 91
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 91
  • Charlotte: 87
  • Chapel Hill: 75
  • New Bern: 71
  • Wilmington: 68
  • Greensboro: 67
  • Hickory: 59
  • Asheville: 19
  • Boone: 4
  • Cape Hatteras: 1
