Forecast July 21st Thursday: A hot and humid day ahead across the state
A hot and humid day ahead, heat index values up to 106° in spots across the state. Happy Thursday, North Carolina! I expect partly to mostly sunny skies, and highs will be in the low/mid-90s across the state. Once you factor in the humidity, the heat index values will be up to 106° in spots; take it easy. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible in a hit-or-miss setup, with isolated severe storm damaging winds the main threat.
