Yeah, it is going to be hot Tuesday. An omen for the future, you can expect almost every location in The Carolinas to break 90°F. The only exception to this will be in the mountains of North Carolina, where Boone and Asheville will enjoy somewhat milder temperatures. The I-95 corridor is where the real heat will be. Many locations, from Fayetteville to Columbia and Allendale, should expect at least 95°F. Now, for the really bad news…

Rock Hill, Columbia, Aiken, and all points east will likely hit a heat index of 100+°F! For most locations, maximum humidity should stay below 75%. Sadly, that is going to change going into the end of the work week.
