If you thought this summer in Raleigh has been an extra excruciatingly hot one, well, you’re right. This month, we’ve already seen the heat index climb to triple digits, hitting anywhere between 101 to 105 degrees in some parts of the Triangle area, and resulting in a heat advisory—which is not the first one we’ve seen this summer either.
WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell said that there have been 41 days this year above 90 degrees at RDU (the yearly average is 43 days), and she expects us to finish out the year above average.
Adding to the heat is the signature North Carolina humidity, which has only gotten worse lately thanks to the multiple rain showers and storms we’ve been having.
Looking ahead, WRAL reports that the forecast for our first “Football Friday” consists of more rain in the afternoon and evening (cue the sighs) and partly cloudy skies. The first week of school will be hot as well, with temps reaching 90 degrees and a small chance of rain.
We know, all anyone is talking about is how hot it is in Raleigh this summer, but—hopefully—we’re nearing cool temps and fall leaves again!
