Myles Henderson’s Live VIPIR Forecast

A hot and humid start… Heat and humidity to start the work week. Highs will climb into the low 90s this afternoon but it will feel more the like the mid 90s with the increased humidity. Most areas will just see a mix of sun and clouds today but a few isolated showers/storms are possible, especially for the Outer Banks. It will be a bit breezy today with south winds at 5 to 15 mph. Even more heat and humidity tomorrow with highs in the mid 90s and heat index values near 100. Expect another chance for isolated showers/storms tomorrow. Highs will remain in the 90s through midweek but a cool down moves in for the weekend.

Today: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers/Storms(20%). Highs in the low 90s. Winds: S 5-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers/Storms(20%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: S 5-15
