As we ended the weekend on Sunday, we saw hotter temperatures with a few more showers and thunderstorms. More heat and less storms are in the forecast for Monday.

Through the rest of the night we'll see partly skies with a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms.

Into the new workweek, hotter weather is in the forecast. High pressure will push warmer air and humid air into North Carolina. This will set the stage for temperatures in the 80s and 90s with heat index values near 100 for many locations. These hot temperatures will continue through much of the week.

By Wednesday, we should have a slightly better chance for showers and afternoon storms. This chance will increase a little more by Thursday and Friday. Daytime highs will lower just a little by the end of the week due to more clouds and a better chance of showers but they will remain above average for late June.

In the tropics, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. It has a low chance for development.
