***A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 PM today for all of Eastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina. Most areas will see highs in the upper 90s with heat index values from 105 to 110.***

The extreme heat continues….Take it easy out there! We’re tracking dangerous heat across the area over the next couple of days. But some of us might get some relief from some cooling thunderstorms this week.

As we move through this Monday, drink plenty of water. We’re tracking high temperatures in the upper 90s. When you factor in the humidity, though, it will feel like 105 to 110 for most areas. We’ll see plenty of sunshine today. Tonight, expect a few clouds. A stray shower is possible north. Low temperatures will be in the upper 70s.

On Tuesday, we’ll see highs in the mid 90s. Still, with the humidity, it will feel like the triple digits. And for most of the work week, we’re expecting highs to dip into the lower 90s. Why you ask? Well, a cold front will approach the area and eventually stall over the Mid-Atlantic for the week, giving way to unsettled conditions and a chance of scattered showers and storms. Otherwise, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds. We’ll track the potential for storms in the weather center for you throughout the week.

Today: Mostly Sunny. Hot and Humid. Highs in the upper 90s. Heat index 105 to 110. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy. Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). Highs in the mid 90s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
